What a party that was!

A huge thanks to all of you who turned out in force to celebrate the launch of this year’s Awards and the official opening of Nominations for outstanding young people.

About 120 children and adults attended to see the wonderful Kate Hardcastle present and compere the party. She was joined by our Friends Eddie Gray, Gary Hetherington and Jamie Jones-Buchanan who all took part in the cake cutting ceremony along with the children. Thanks to Debra Coupland for making such a wonderful cake!

Commiserations to the Chuckle Brothers our Ambassadors who were unable to be present as Paul Elliott was unwell and recovering from breaking his ribs. We’ve saved you a slice of cake!

Commiserations too to our high profile past winner, young talented dancer Junior Frood, who has a broken ankle and was unable to dance for us. He was there with a smile on his face and is looking forward to all his forthcoming appearances. His Mum told us he is never going near an inflatable slide again!!

A wonderful young singing and acting duet Lucy Sherman and Sully Martin performed a song from the musical Bugsy Malone – to huge applause from the audience. Thank you for stepping in at short notice!

Our 3 Group Award Nominees were also well represented and we thank you for attending and supporting us:

  • Children’s Heart Surgery Fund
  • Heart Research UK
  • PACT – the Parents Association of Children with Tumours and Leukaemia

Amber Buckle one of our 2016 Award Winners was presented with a cheque for £6,000 from SJP Foundation for funds she raised for Heart Research UK. Well done Amber!

Thanks too to all those who supported us with goody bag donations, Bar Events for the Mixology and Marco’s Ice Cream.
