AN OTLEY student is celebrating being made an Ambassador for a national charity.

Eve Williams has been appointed to the role by CP Teens UK, which offers help and inspiration to children and young people with cerebral palsy and their families.

A Year 7 pupil at Prince Henry''s Grammar School, Eve is following in the footsteps of former student and Otley Ambassador Chloe Tear, who is now Assistant Co-ordinator for CP Teens.

Eve, who like Chloe is living with cerebral palsy, said: "I am honoured about becoming a CP Teens Ambassador.

"I am really looking forward to giving advice to others with the same or a similar disability.

"Having cerebral palsy can be hard at times, so the chance to help others is a great opportunity."

Chloe's work for CP Teens and to raise awareness of the condition - including through her Life as a Cerebral Palsy Student blog - has seen her nominated for several national awards.

She said: "I am so proud of Eve for becoming a CP Teens UK Ambassador.

"I've watched the charity grow over the last few years and it is a real privilege to now be their Assistant Co-Ordinator.

"Eve now has a profile on the website and will be inspiring other young people who have Cerebral Palsy.

"As an ambassador, she has written a blog post and will now act as a mentor in this new role.

"It is incredibly important for young people who have a disability to have a role model and I am proud to see Eve providing just that.

"She will be an amazing ambassador."

Assistant Headteacher and SENCO at Prince Henry's, Phil Temple, added: "Eve is a great student, with a positive and pro-active approach to life.

"I am sure she will take on this role with enthusiasm and be an inspiration to those who read her blog."
