Inspirational youngsters were honoured at an annual awards ceremony.
Matlock girls Anna Thompson and Izzy and Millie Bunting were among the youngsters presented with Derbyshire Young Achiever Awards.
Anna was commended for her courage in battling childhood leukaemia and fundraising for good causes.
The 11-year-old still undergoes treatment for health complications resulting from chemotherapy.
Her proud parents Mark and Kathryn nominated her saying she is a “wonderful, thoughtful and caring person who has twice raised money for other causes through her own fund-raising ideas.”
Ten-year-old Izzy and her sister Millie, who’s eight, also picked up awards for their work to improve the environment and highlighting environmental issues.
Izzy and Millie were nominated by their proud parents Richard and Penny.
The sisters helped plant hundreds of broadleaved and fruit trees in their home town, including at home and at school, created an eco garden at All Saints’ Infants, provided habitats for wildlife, with bee and butterfly gardens and attended events at Derbyshire Eco Centre and Northwood Household Waste Recycling Centre.
The All Saints’ Junior School pupils have also dressed up as bees and polar bears to promote events organised by environmental project Little Green Space and community eco group Transition Matlock.
In total 78 young people – aged four to 17 – and two groups, received awards during the ceremony held at Highfields School in Matlock on Friday, December 9.
The event hosted by Derbyshire County Council saw the young person nominated because they had shown bravery, kindness, a commitment to improving their school, community or local environment or sporting, musical, artistic or academic success.
Former Blue Peter presenter Andy Akinwolere handed out the awards along with chairman of the council George Wharmby.
Guests were welcomed to the celebrations by a speech from council leader Andrew Lewer.
Cllr Lewer said: “We know that young people have a lot to give.
“The majority of young people are doing good things in our schools, homes and communities. Unfortunately we do not get to hear enough about them – which is why we think it is important to recognise the outstanding achievements of these incredible young people.”
