His Royal Highness then presented the Award for the Most Inspirational Child (aged 4-6) to Erin and Finley. Erin, known her positivity & bubbly personality, has been fighting Leukaemia for 5 years & is raising funds for her oncology unity. 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.

Following the ceremony Prince Harry gave a speech, commending the courage of seriously ill children and their families:

This is my tenth year as WellChild's patron and of course I'm honoured to be here at another awards ceremony celebrating the powerful work of this organisation.
