8 year old Franky Kenneth has been recognised for helping those that are less fortunate.

Franky found inspiration in helping others through his father's commitments to the military, and hasn't stopped working to make the lives of other people better.

The Kiwi School pupil has sent shoeboxes abroad, collected items to deliver to the homeless shelter in Salisbury and has been volunteering for over a year at a local care home. 

He collected £42 for residents suffering with dementia in Franky's and took part in Salisbury's Race for Life, raising an incredible £250 for Cancer Research UK.

His mum Ruby, who nominated her son, says he's "an amazing little boy who is wild and full of life, always thinking of others and how he can help".
