She has managed to raise over 150,000 over the years for Muscular Dystrophy UK, a charity that means a lot to her.

Carmelas’ progressive muscle wasting disease is called LMNA congenital muscular dystrophy, which means his muscles weaken over time and children with it often don’t live to see their 20s.

Since her diagnosis at the age of three, Carmela and her family have worked to help fund research into potential treatments – and ultimately a cure – for others suffering from muscle wasting.

The Points of Light award recognizes outstanding volunteers who inspire others, something Carmela seems to do on a regular basis.

Last week Carmela completed her latest charity event, Wonder Wheels, raising 3,500 for Muscular Dystrophy UK and was joined by Paralympian star, Rachel Morris.

A team of 15 fundraisers, led by Carmelas’ mother Lucy, cycled 66 miles through Wiltshire villages on Monday August 1.
