Nine-year-old fundraiser receives Diana Award for work in Isle of Man community

Chloe Rollitt has received a Diana Award for going above and beyond in her life with her fundraising efforts around the Isle of Man.

She was diagnosed with epilepsy and cerebral palsy and was given a 50% chance of survival at birth, but now at nine year's old she has raised over £13,000 for Noble's Hospital and has been awarded for her efforts.

The funds provided new patients beds in the children's ward of the hospital, where she attends her own physiotherapy and other appointments.

Other events that she has been involved with include raising £1,000 in a day during the Special Olympics and another £3,000 for 'DreamCatcher'.

She is currently taking part in her latest fundraising challenge running 20K in 20 days and raising money for Make a Wish UK.

The Diana Award is described as the highest accolade a young person can achieve for social action or humanitarian efforts.

Thousands tuned in to the global virtual ceremony, which was streamed around the world.

There are 13 Diana Award judging panels representing each UK region or nation and three panels representing countries outside the UK.

We congratulate all our new Diana Award recipients who are changemakers for their generation. We know by receiving this honour they will inspire more young people to get involved in their communities and begin their own journey as active citizens.

Tessy Ojo, CEO of the Diana Awards

The award is supported by both The Duke of Cambridge and The Duke of Sussex.
