Last year's ceremony

Last year’s high profile WellChild Awards ceremony at The Royal Lancaster Hotel, London saw WellChild Patron, Prince Harry and a host of celebrities recognise the courage of children and young people with serious illnesses and complex care needs. Also honoured at the star–studded ceremony were dedicated doctors, nurses, volunteers, brothers and sisters. Winners and their families met Prince Harry and many of WellChild’s celebrity supporters.

“These awards were created to shine a bright light on an amazingly brave group of children and young people. Life for families caring for seriously ill children is exceptionally tough. And without WellChild it is even tougher.”

– WellChild Patron, Prince Harry
