The winner of the Young Person of the Year Award is Jamie Alcock

Jamie AlcockMy son Jamie is remarkable, I have a hip replacement and I'm due to have it re-replacement, Jamie helps me around the house, he lifts and carries and, even though his a teenager, this is done all without a strop. My daughter's father died when she was 5 weeks, and when my son was just 10 years of age. Jamie has willingly stepped up to big brother/ step in dad. On holiday he is the one going down the water slides and making her laugh by throwing her around, all those crazy things a dad would do.

The relationship my son and daughter have is just beautiful and the three of us are most definitely the three musketeers, all for one and one for all.

I know many parents believe their children are amazing, and I am positive they all are, but Jamie has gone through so much including: myself and his father splitting up, his brother dying, his sister being born, his stepdad dying and my hip deteriorating. This child is 14, he has regular glowing school reports and an outstanding parents evenings. 

I am so proud of this little lad, with a heart of gold and now with a little part-time job in a local café, this child just Amazes me, his dad, his family and friends and his biggest fan which is his little sister Rosie.
