A brilliant young carer has been hailed a hero

Lewis Martin Edwards, 12, won Champion Young Carer of the Year award out of 3800 carers in the south west.
The 12-year-old cares for his mother Jo and helps with medication, cooking, checking blood pressure and other jobs.
On top of this, Lewis was described as a superb student at Worle Community School Academy in Weston super Mare, raising thousands for charity, and inspiring younger students.
Principal Jacqui Scott said: “Lewis is a superb student and a credit to our academy.
He is kind, thoughtful, positive and is quite clearly overcoming challenges with his tremendous attitude and resilience.”
At an award ceremony for young carers in the South West, judges praised Lewis for being kind and positive all the time and for having the attitude of never giving up.
It is not the only remarkable thing about Lewis. Since being part of Dazrocks4charity, he has help raise thousands of pounds by helping out with singing and events.
Lewis is also a talented singer and sang ‘Don’t Stop Believing’ by the band Journey, which has lyrics which have reminded him to keep going, be positive and never give up.
He is also a big part of the Jill Dando News Centre at WCSA, and trains up pupils in primary schools.
He said: “The feeling of being recognised for doing what I do when caring for my mum 24.7 is amazing.”
