Jason was awarded for his work at The Pride of Essex awards which took place on November 19.

The charity, based in Faringdon Avenue, is in memory of Jason's dad Phil, who died just a few months after it was set up. It helps children in Havering, Redbridge and Barking and Dagenham as well as Essex.

Jason said: "This really is well deserved recognition for all our amazing supporters, who without their generosity, none of the wishes that we grant would be possible."
