BGT’s Princess Hypnodog is guest star at Yorkshire Children of Courage Award’s launch party!


Princess Hypnodog and her Assistant Krystyna Lennon were on hand to meet all the children and guests  at the launch of the 2015 Yorkshire Children of Courage Awards at Headingley Experience on Monday 11th May at 6pm.

The Leeds -based black German Spitz dog and Krystyna made quite an impression on Simon Cowell during their recent auditions for Britain’s Got Talent and were indeed very popular with the children as Nominations  for the 2015 Awards Dinner are officially launched.

Attending the party on Monday were event Ambassadors, the evergreen Chuckle Brothers, as well as a host of Friends including Billy Pearce, Gary Hetherington, Jamie-Jones Buchanan, Kate Hardcastle and Helen Oldham. Other Friends who couldn’t be there sent their best wishes and included Gary Verity, Christine Talbot and Ryan Sidebottom.

Many of the past Award winners came along with their parents to enjoy an hour of fun and frivolity with entertainment from Jessica Frost, local young singing superstar.

 Zest Mixology were on hand with a ‘flair bartender’ ready to make drinks for the adults and Mocktails for under 18’s whilst performing mixing routines. Filmore & Union also had their Smoothies and other tempting nibbles for all to enjoy and everyone’s favourite Yorkshire dish of Fish & Chips was served as the evening drew to a close.

The Leeds Committee of St. James’s Place Foundation, who organise the Yorkshire Children of Courage Awards welcomed our sponsors, supporters and guests along with the event’s Media Partners – Yorkshire Post Newspapers, Made in Leeds Television, Stray FM and Living North.

The 2014 event raised in excess of £100,000 of funds for The SJP Foundation for redistribution to local communities via grant application.
