Teenager Tammy Reynolds has won two awards for her caring work in the East Renfrewshire community.

The Eastwood High pupils received both the East Ren Young Carer of the Year title and a Diana Award for combining school work with helping to care for her mum, as well as work in the wider community.

Tammy is a member of the Big ShoutER community research group, speaking to youth and school groups on topics such as alcohol, smoking, mental and sexual health, and is the only member of the group under the age of 18.

Well done Tammy!
