Nominations wanted for WellChild Awards

I would like to appeal to your readers to give some very special children and caring professionals in your area the recognition they deserve by nominating them before the May 2 deadline for the 2016 WellChild Awards.

As an ambassador for national children’s charity WellChild, I have been honoured to attend and to host the WellChild Awards and see the support they bring to many truly inspirational children and young people who live with serious illnesses.

The WellChild Awards is a fantastic way of celebrating the bravery and courage they show and is unique in also honouring their siblings, friends, doctors, nurses, caring professionals and community teams who make such a positive difference to their lives.

We need as many people as possible to put forward a child, or young person, whose bravery in coping with their condition is an inspiration.

We also want to hear about the work of those amazing carers and professionals.

I am sure many of your readers know people who fit into the WellChild Award categories and I would ask anyone who would like to recognise and celebrate those people to nominate them at the charity’s website or by calling 084 5458 8171.
