We are thrilled that Paces’ pupil ’Captain’ Tobias Weller has been awarded the British Empire Medal in the New Year Honours.
Julie Booth, Head of Fundraising at Paces, said:
“Captain Tobias is a legend, he has achieved a huge amount for someone so young and it is fitting those efforts have been recognised by Her Majesty in today’s New Year Honours.
“The money he has raised for Paces is already making a big difference to the help we are able to provide for the children and adults we support. He and his classmates at Paces School are inspirational, they work incredibly hard every day to achieve their potential and we are proud of them all for showing that we must always focus on ability not disability.”
