Lisa Wallis, founder of ChemoHero, has been awarded a Health Star Award at a national awards ceremony in London.

An inspirational woman from Fremington has won a national award for her charity work.

Lisa Wallis was awarded a Good Morning Britain Health Star Award for her work setting up ChemoHero while fighting her own battle against cancer.

Lisa, 34, was surprised by Piers Morgan on live television to be told she had won the award.

She was then presented with it at a star-studded event on Monday evening by Russell Watson and Alison Steadman.

The awards were hosted by Kate Garraway and Susanna Reid, and attended by a star-studded line-up.

The mum-of-one was presented with the Community Health Star category, recognising her efforts with ChemoHero.

She founded the charity a year ago after finding there was little support for people underegoing chemotherapy.

Lisa has fought cancer twice but has never let this deter her from helping others with their own treatment.

ChemoHero is currently looking for businesses to sponsor items in its Boxes of Kindness.

Lisa told the Gazette earlier this month: "Lisa added: "I don't know what's going to happen to me, but I want my husband and family to know I have left something special. This is my legacy."
