A 17-YEAR-OLD from Chorley has been recognised for his work on raising awareness about child sexual exploitation and has been named the High Sheriff of Lancashire’s Young Citizen of the Year at an awards ceremony at Lancashire Constabulary Headquarters.

Stela Stansfield, Project Co-ordinator at The Children Society said: “Whilst still busy with college Kyran has been dedicated in helping others who may find themselves in difficult and even traumatising circumstances.

“Kyran has been involved in joint fundraising activities and has been heavily involved in raising awareness about this problem facing children everywhere.

“Kyran is a role model to his peers and is always willing to help and support young people. He truly is a young citizen that deserves to be celebrated.”

Runners-up at the ceremony were 23-year-old Rachel Lambert from Lytham and 16-year-old Liam McClean from Blackpool.

Rachel was nominated for her volunteering work as a photographer. Rachel graduated from university with a 2.1 degree in photography, and has had to battle with achondroplasia, a form of dwarfism, and a tracheostomy that enables her to breathe. Sadly Rachel became paralysed from the neck down and it has taken years for her to regain some mobility. But Rachel has not let this hold her back and has learnt to drive, with a specially adapted car, and has used her skills as a photographer to make new friends and to give something back to the community.

Liam was nominated for being a carer for his mum Leanne, but in particular for his actions on one specific day when his mum had a seizure when driving him to school and Liam quickly recognised the signs and sought help.

High Sheriff Barry Johnson said: “It was a fantastic night and a real privilege to present the awards to so many deserving young people.

“Young people can sometimes get a bad press because, often, the majority are let down by the actions of a few. I am delighted to be able to reverse that trend by celebrating and promoting the achievements of young people instead.”
