Mencap Journalism Awards!

I have some huge news!

‘The Mencap Journalism Awards are about supporting the next generation of journalists to help promote and raise awareness of issues faced by people with a Learning Disability’

Back in February/March time I wrote a piece about Rory and entered it in to the Mencap Journalism Awards. I entered and since I have only been writing since September 2016, I didn’t expect to get very far.


I received an email and as some of you know (I posted straight away on my social media as I couldn’t contain my excitement!) I won first prize in the print category! I was so shocked that I started crying down the phone to my mum! I have been invited to the Mencap offices in London at the end of July but unfortunately I might not be able to make it as Baby Fisher might be making an appearance that week.

Mencap is a UK charity for people with Learning Disabilities –
