Bablake Pre Prep pupil Lyla has been awarded the JustGiving 'Young Fundraiser of the Year' award for her amazing fundraising efforts last year.
You may remember reading about Lyla last December when she surprised her Mum and Dad by asking for donations to WaterAid for her 5th birthday instead of birthday presents.
Lyla's selfless act attracted lots of media attention which sparked an interest from Severn Trent Water. They got in touch with Lyla to congratulate her on her fundraising efforts (£865.71 at the time) and offered to match whatever she raised! Lyla's total fundraising amount was a huge £4874.90 for WaterAid, which put her in the top 3% of fundraisers (out of 532124!) on the JustGiving website. Her achievements led to her being nominated as 'Young Fundraiser of the Year' at the national JustGiving Awards.
Lyla and her family attended the award ceremony in London and were shocked (and very pleased!) when Lyla was announced the winner. As a school we are very proud of Lyla's fundraising achievements and we are over the moon that they have been recognised by the JustGiving Award, an experience which we're sure she will never forget. Well done Lyla!
