By Amy Nickalls

A budding author has been given the best Christmas present this year thanks to kmfm and Kent Reliance.

Today, Alice Wightman, 11, from Canterbury, became the second person to receive a surprise as part of this year's Make Someone's Christmas campaign.

Over the past few weeks kmfm listeners have been nominating people in Kent who deserve an extra special treat.

All this week and next week Rob Wills on kmfm Drivetime, will be making 10 surprise calls to speak to some of those amazing people that have been nominated.

Alice's mum, Katie Jones, nominated her to receive a computer and printer as a thank you for helping to look after her older sister, who suffered a brain injury after a car crash, and the rest of her family.

Listen to the moment Rob called Alice below.

When nominating her daughter, Katie said: "I would love to nominate my daughter Alice to receive a computer and printer.

"Alice is a young carer and helps me a lot at home with her younger siblings and housework as well as dealing with her own stress and anxieties.

"She has recently started a new school and is thriving even though it was a massive step for her. Her dream is to be an author and she has already started writing a book which is already fantastic.

"Thing is, her laptop has broken and with it being Christmas I can't afford to replace that as well as get gifts for her 5 siblings.

"I work full time and my husband is a carer and we struggle to make ends meet. I just know this could be the step to making her dream a reality and allow her to finish her book."

Yesterday, Belle received her surprise and tomorrow it will be someone else's turn.

You can still nominate someone by clicking here. It closes at 5pm tomorrow.
