Plucky schoolgirl Bluebelle Wednesday Carroll deserves nothing but praise for her tireless charity work.
The 13-year-old Camden School for Girls pupil juggles schoolwork with running a pen-pal scheme for children living in terrible conditions at a Kenyan refugee camp. But her philanthropic efforts do not end there.
She single-handedly organised and hosted a dazzling benefit music concert last month at The Barfly bar in Chalk Farm.
The night raised a whopping £1,810 to fund expensive postage fees and stationery so that the Somali refugees can send letters back to their Camden pen-pals.
The letter-writing project, called Words not Wars, earned Bluebelle a Camden Youth Award in February.

Bluebelle, of Caversham Road, said: “I thought that there is so much war at the moment, everyone is talking about it in the news. I thought it was really sad and I wanted to do something about it.”
