WellChild is the national charity for seriously ill children and their families. 2017 marks ten years of Prince Harry's Patronage.

His Royal Highness then presented the Award for the Most Inspirational Child (aged 4-6) to Erin and Finley.

Despite suffering from Ehlers Danlos Syndrome, Finley never complains and is an inspiration to all those who meet him.
The annual Awards celebrate the inspiring qualities of some of the country's seriously ill young people, and the dedication of those who go the extra mile to keep children health and happy, including outstanding health, social are and education professionals.
