Herbie Stubberfield who attends All Saints Carshalton Church of England Primary School was presented today with a very special Sarah Thewlis Good Citizen Award. He was given this by the head teacher Mrs Hart Dyke and upon receiving a wonderful plaque along with some very kind words from Herbie’s teachers and friends he was asked to choose a charity of his choice. Herbie chose the Diamond Riding Centre and £500.00 will be donated to them. It was a very touching moment as Herbie’s best friend at All Saints, James Feltham, has cerebral palsy and rides at the Diamond every Saturday.
Both boys have become firm friends since starting school in 2007 and James’ mum said “I couldn’t think of a nicer person to whom this award should be presented. Herbie has many qualities but above all he is kind, considerate and always extremely polite to everybody. What an honour it is to know such a lovely child and me and my family cannot thank him enough for choosing a charity which is very close to our hearts”.
