TWO inspirational young people, and an amazing group of local youngsters, have shared in the title of 'Little Champion of the Year'.

The category, sponsored by Flynn Flooring and Bathrooms, was collectively received by self-published author, Mennah Abdalquadar; CBeebies voice actor, Nine He; and the RotaKids, at Enniskillen Model Primary School.

At just 11-years-old, Mennah self-published her first book, a 211-page children's novel, 'Into the Tunnel of Murder'. She not only wrote but also illustrated the book herself!

Host, David Blevins, asked Meenah: "I have been writing for about 35 years, but I have not written a book. How on earth do you start to begin to write a book?"

"It's not very hard, you know," Meenah quipped. "All I did, really, was open up my laptop and start!"

Meanwhile, nine-year-old Newtownbutler schoolgirl, Nina He, was also honoured as a Little Champion.

She is Fermanagh's youngest TV star, as the voice of 'Yukee' on BBC's Cbeebies. She has put Fermanagh on the map, and has inspired schoolchildren everywhere to follow their dreams.

Mr. Blevins asked Nina: "How did you end up on CBeebies?"

In response, she said: "My mum goes on the internet and she searches little things. She found a wee website that said, ‘Send in a video of you singing’.

"We did it, and we got a message back to go to Belfast!"

The Enniskillen Model Primary School RotaKids were also honoured for their impressive charitable contributions.

Consisting of 12 members, the RotaKids have raised more than £500 this year for the Daisy Lodge Cancer for Children Charity.

Despite their young age (7 to 12 years), they have demonstrated exceptional dedication to their community, making new friends, and enjoying themselves while making a positive impact.

Speaking on the award, RotaKids president, Charlotte, said: "We are all very happy. We actually did another fundraiser recently, and we are continuing to raise more money for charity!"

Sponsor David Mahon, of Flynn Flooring, said: "It has been a fantastic night, and everyone really enjoyed themselves.

"It was a privilege and a pleasure to sponsor the Little Champions, and it was great to see them picking up their awards and achieving far beyond their ages.

"It is clear that there are so many inspirational people within our communities, and the night went to show how many people are doing good in the local area.

"I congratulate The Impartial Reporter and the organisers, and all the winners and runners-up."
