A YOUNG volunteer from Wigan has been enjoying the VIP treatment courtesy of Ashes winning cricket captain Michael Vaughan.

Cameron Foster, 16, from Hindley Green, was Vaughan’s guest of honour at England’s recent Test match against India at Edgbaston.

He spent a day behind the scenes getting a look at how things work at such high profile matches.

Vaughan had got in touch after hearing about Cameron through ex-teammate Andrew Flintoff, who met him when he presented him with the Princess Diana award after he had raised more than £15,000 for charity.

Cameron fell from a ski-lift during a school trip and was forced to spend time in a wheelchair. Since then he has devoted much of his life to raising money for those less fortunate.

This earned him the prestigious award and Flintoff was quick to tell everyone he could, including his 380,000 followers on Twitter about Cameron’s work.
