Five News and the Charities Aid Foundation (CAF) are seeking nominations for Britain’s Kindest Kid 2011, a competition to find and recognise “the extraordinary achievements of kids aged 5-16 who have shown real kindness to others, or given up their time for a good cause”.
For the fourth year, five finalists will have their stories told on Five News in late October and the winner, voted for by the public, will be announced in November. The winner will receive £1000 pocket money and £1000 to donate to the charity of their choice.
Charities and community groups are invited to nominate their most successful or remarkable child supporters.
Last year’s winner was Dylan Ward from Washington, Tyne and Wear. He raised money for Macmillan Cancer Support, who cared for his grandfather before he died, by selling pictures he had painted.
Emma Crosby, Five News presenter said: “We want to see inspirational kids enter who make the world a better place for others whether that’s helping their family, their community or through work with a charity.”
The closing date for entries is 5 September 2011.
