Last year’s WellChild Award winner from Hucknall has joined the call for nominations for this year’s 2017 WellChild Awards.

Myles Sketchley. 17, was picked from 100s of nominations from across the UK to win the Inspirational Young Person Awards category.

Myles has exceptional health needs including cerebral palsy, a rare brain disorder called schizencephaly and respiratory and heart problems.

Myles was nominated for a WellChild Award by Hayley Smallman and April Fitzmaurice who witnessed his work with other children, particularly as an ambassador for the Strongbones Children’s Charity Trust where he is constantly coming up with new ways to make other children feel special and help them engage with the world.

Despite needing help himself, he works tirelessly each month producing blogs and vlogs on fun and interesting places for children with disabilities to visit.

Myles mum, Christine, said: “It was such a great experience for us all to be involved in and something we will never forget.

“It would be terrific for another child or professional from our region to be a winner.”
