Daniel Bernard, a member of The Liberal Synagogue Elstree (TLSE), won the Most Inspirational Young Person Award at the Inspire the House Awards at The Houses of Parliament.
Following his success at the Special Olympics in Abu Dhabi earlier this year – where he represented Team GB and won gold with the Men’s Basketball team – Daniel was nominated for the award by his MP Richard Harrington.
In his nomination Mr Harrington (MP for Watford) wrote that Daniel has “overcome adversity to represent his country so successfully on the world stage.
He added: “Daniel’s remarkable achievement is a true inspiration to young people in our area and across the country, particularly those like him who have a learning disability.”
Daniel has autism and learning difficulties. He was extremely proud to win the award, especially as he was accompanied by his family, all of whom are TLSE members.
