INSPIRATIONAL pupils from Barking and Dagenham's Catholic schools were honoured during a special ceremony at Brentwood Cathedral.

They were among dozens of youngsters from across the Diocese of Brentwood who were given citizenship awards.

Alice Barry and Harriet Shanahan, year five girls at St Teresa's Primary, Dagenham, did a three mile run in Hyde Park and raised more than £300 for Great Ormond Street Hospital.

Harriet has since moved to St Joseph's, Upminster, but the pair are still great friends.

Grace Copeland, year eight pupil from All Saints School, Terling Road, Dagenham, was honoured for her fundraising on behalf of CAFOD and the Brentwood Catholic Children's Society.

And Courtney Hesketh, from year three at St Vincent's Primary School, Dagenham, won an award for her constant involvement in all aspects of school life.

Awards were given out by Right Rev Thomas McMahon, Bishop of Brentwood on April 25.
