Harry wins teen “Caring For Others” award

A boy with aniridia has won an award for his caring nature. Harry, 16, from the Exeter area won the “Caring For Others” category in the Teen Awards run by the Exeter Express & Echo newspaper. The awards “show that teenagers are some of the leading members of our community – but that their efforts too often go unsung.”

Harry was nominated by a tutor at his school for being “caring and considerate to all”, for example helping a peer who is a wheelchair user. His mum Becki said she was “very proud”.

Harry and his family are part of Aniridia Network UK. We’d like to take this chance to add our congratulations to him.
