17th Sept 2018 – Once again Loreto pupils have been recognised for their charitable deeds!  This year two of our students were nominated for the Herts Advertise Community Awards.

Karis Rable was one of the four finalists for the Role Model of the Year award.  Earlier this year Karis stunned everyone with how much money she raised during Lent.  More details of her amazing achievement can be read here.  As you will see, she certainly deserved her nomination for this award.

Lucy Green was up for the Community Hero award.  Last Christmas Lucy decided to try to bring a little more cheer into the lives of those in hospital during the festive period.  You can read more about this here.  It is easy to see why she impressed the judges.

Both Lucy and Karis have described the whole award ceremony as a fantastic experience.  Neither of them set out to help others in the expectation that they would receive special recognition for what they were doing, but it is great to know that big-hearted acts like theirs do not go unnoticed!

The Herts Advertiser describes the event on pages 20-21 of last Thursday’s edition.  If you have signed up for the digital version of the newspaper, you can see the relevant edition here.  A full list of the finalists and winners can be seen here.  Pictures from the event can be seen here.
