He won The Rocky Award for Helping the Community after raising hundreds of pounds for Scotty’s Little Soldiers, a charity that supports bereaved families of soldiers.

Kaidan was presented with his award at the Gloworm Festival on Sunday, August 19, where he met former JLS singer JB Gill and PAW Patrol pups Chase and Marshall.

He said: “It was ‘squilliant’ (better than brilliant!) getting my award and medal!

“I loved meeting my favourite pups and JB. He was really nice too, he let mummy take his photo with me.

“I still can’t believe I won. The other children were very nice, one saved a doggy!”
