A FLEGGBURGH schoolboy has won a top PDSA award - for the second time!
Twelve-year-old Nathan Williamson was crowned PDSA Pet Protector of the Year 2009 by the veterinary charity at a presentation in Norwich on Monday. He first won the award in 2008.
During the past year, Nathan has been an active member of the charity's Pet Protectors Club, which aims to teach animal-mad kids about caring for pets while having lots of fun. As well as entering competitions and drawing animal pictures for the members' magazine, Animal Antics, Nathan also donated bags of clothes to his local PDSA shop in Norwich and urged his friends and family to do the same.
Nathan, who attends Acle High School, scooped the title by amassing an incredible 83,000 points in the club's award scheme - smashing his total of 66,000 points in 2008.

Nathan says: “I really love animals and have lots of pets, including a dog, two cats and two guinea pigs. I joined the Pet Protectors Club to raise funds for PDSA so the vets and nurses could treat pets like mine.”
