Midsomer Norton teenager's volunteering is an inspiration
A Midsomer Norton teenage volunteer has received a national commendation in recognition for inspiring others to take up volunteering.
Vicky Meek has been highly commended by the Charity Retail Association for her work in aid of Barnardo's.
It is the latest accolade for the 17-year-old, who last year received a BBC Pride of Somerset Award for her voluntary role at the Barnardo's shop in The Hollies.
Shop manager Angie Cruickshank nominated Vicky for the award, and said she was proud of her efforts to combine her studies with volunteering.
