Pride of Guernsey: Katie Knight

KATIE KNIGHT has been nominated for the Young Achiever of the Year award, sponsored by St Pierre Park.


17-year-old Katie has grown up on Sark and now attends Sparaholt College in the UK where she studies animal care and management, collecting many achievements along the way.

‘She was a founding member and leader of Sark Watch group that started to help wildlife on Sark,’ said her nominator, who wanted to be anonymous.

Throughout her childhood Katie has successfully fostered and rehabilitated baby and adult hedgehogs.

Over the years Katie has raised money for all sorts of charities through cake sales, raffles, jumble sales and helping at the Sark Sheep Race.

Since she has been living in the UK for most of the year, Katie has overcome her fear of big cities and is thriving living away from home in a place so different from Sark.

‘She is a member of the committee raising money to fund medicine for Sark residents,’ her nominator added. Katie works tirelessly for charity.

Katie is an amazing older sister to four younger siblings. Going above and beyond what is expected for a teenager, Katie is a very valued part of the Sark community.
