William earns Lions award for dedication to charity

A former Spalding Academy student has been awarded for his dedication to charity and all-round “exemplary” performance during his five years at the school.

William Pite, who this year left year 11 and is now pursuing an apprenticeship, recieved the Stand Tall Award from Spalding Lions.

Mr Ian Billinghurst from Spalding Academy said: “William is involved in supporting the charity his family set up in the memory of his brother Callum, Callum Pite’s Smile Charity, raising thousands of pounds to support families that have been affected by cancer.

“Callum Pite’s Smile Charity has provided 97 gifts to families that have been affected by cancer.”
Mr Billinghurst added William was a great role model for younger students throughout his school career.
William also earned the school’s Business Studies prize for achieving three grades higher than his target grade, said Mr Billinghurst.

“We are very proud of William’s achievements and wish him the best of luck in his future away from Spading Academy,” he added.
