Jay­den’s got award licked

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

A GEN­ER­OUS six-yearold has been given an award by a char­ity in recog­ni­tion of his fundrais­ing ef­forts.

Jay­den Butcher, of Field Way, Chal­font St Peter, was given the Out­stand­ing Young Per­son award from the Air Am­bu­lance char­ity.

Jay­den, who is a pupil at Thorpe House School in Ger­rards Cross, com­pleted a 200-me­tre swim in June this year after rais­ing a to­tal of £2,127.

He de­cided to raise the money after the char­ity helped to save his un­cle James Butcher’s life last year after he was knocked off his mo­tor­cyle on the A413 at Tatling End.

Jay­den dis­cov­ered he had won after go­ing along to a cer­e­mony at the Mil­len­nium Glouces­ter Ho­tel in London on Mon­day, Novem­ber 17.

His head­mas­ter Ter­ence Ayres pre­sented him with a spe­cial award upon his re­turn to school.

Jay­den’s mother Pippa said: “It was a very proud mo­ment for us.”
