Prince Harry attends the annual WellChild Awards at The Dorchester 


As Patron of WellChild, The Prince commended the courage of seriously ill children and their families, and thanked those who care for and support them. Prince Harry attended a pre-ceremony reception where he met the young winners of each award category and members of their families. He then attended the ceremony and presented the Award for Most Inspirational Child (aged 4-6) and delivered a short speech.

WellChild is the national charity for seriously ill children and their families. Across the UK, growing numbers of children remain in hospital simply because there is no support enabling them to leave. Through a nationwide network of WellChild Nurses, home makeover projects and family support programmes, WellChild is committed to giving these children the best chance to thrive – at home, together with their families. Prince Harry became Patron of WellChild in 2007 and has attended their Awards Ceremony on seven previous occasions.

The 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 healthy and happy, including the outstanding health, social care and education professionals.
