The current situation is proving to be very difficult in many ways however our thoughtful student, Alfie Dixon-Clark, has been busy returning the smiles to many faces across County Durham.
Alfie has taken it upon himself to provide and deliver 'survival packs' for other children in the community using his own pocket money. The packs include chocolate, colouring pages and other items to help cure boredom during the coronavirus lockdown - he has even made gluten-free and dairy-free options.
Hundreds of survival packs have now been delivered to children in his local area and Alfie has since been interviewed on local radio stations, Capital and BBC, and he has featured in various local newspapers plus Channel 4 also recently got in touch to speak to Alfie. He has also received fan mail from people all over the world, congratulating him on his caring act.
Alfie's mam, Jaynie, commented: "It is just so lovely. I'm so proud. He always wants to do the right thing and the school has been so supportive of him and the community."
Alfie was recently named 'Durham Inspirational Young Person of the Year' for his tireless work and dedication in supporting the local community and we must say it is well deserved. Well done Alfie, we are incredibly proud of you!
