Storm were delighted to work with the WellChild National Children’s Charity to deliver the WellChild Awards 2021. Providing full production services to this years Awards. Including; Lighitng, Sound, Step & Repeat Backdrop & a Stretch Tent at Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew.
The WellChild Awards, in association with GSK, celebrates the inspirational qualities of the UK’s seriously ill children and young people. Along with those who go that extra mile to make a difference to their lives. Particuarly, the challenges many have faced through COVID-19 have made hearing and recognising their stories more important than ever.
The Duke of Sussex, Prince Harry surprised the attendees as the Patron of the WellChild charity. Along with special guests including; Ed Sheeran, Anne-Marie, Ronnie Wood, Strictly Come Dancing star AJ Pritchard & Amanda Holden. During the event, there was a special acoustic performance by Anne-Marie.
Un-surprisingly, the huge disruption from Coronavirus in 2020 resulted in the postponement of the Awards for the year. WellChild, with the support of their sponsors and the general public were able to bring the Awards back for 2021. Many of the vulnerable children, young people and their families supported by WellChild have struggled immensely during COVID-19. The 2021 WellChild Awards helped to shine a light on the challenges they have faced. Whilst bringing some much needed hope and positivity to their lives at this difficult and uncertain time.
Just a quick note to say thank you so much for all your hard work on the WellChild Awards. I know there were lots of last-minute changes and amends. You were always so accommodating, and a hero for getting everything approved. Everyone said it really made the event. So once again huge thanks to you and the team for being such a great team to work with.
Thank you so much again from all of us here and from all of our winners for helping to make the event such a memorable and wonderful event. Particularly with all the challenges that we have all faced this year. To be able to have held such a special awards ceremony in a different format and to have your support at the event meant the world to us!Senior events manager, WellChild
