Countdown to Celebrating Young Legends with Spond
Spond, the leading sports team management app dedicated to championing sustainable and accessible grassroots sport for all, has proudly announced its sponsorship of the “Inspirational Young Person 12-14yrs” category at the 2023 WellChild Awards.
Celebrities from all over the country will gather in London on the 7th of September to salute the bravery of children and young people with exceptional health needs at the annual WellChild Awards, held in association with GSK. Managed by WellChild, the national charity for seriously ill children, the event will also be graced by the charity’s Patron, Prince Harry, The Duke of Sussex, who will share his insights.
The awards also commend the tireless efforts of dedicated doctors, nurses, health workers, and family members who have consistently gone above and beyond for the well-being of seriously ill children and young people.
With its business ethos rooted in promoting inclusivity in sport, Spond, which has its UK office in Cheltenham close to the headquarters of Wellchild, is delighted to sponsor the Inspirational Young Person 12-14yrs category.
Trine Falnes, CEO of Spond, commented, “Our support for the WellChild Awards aligns seamlessly with Spond’s mission. These young individuals embody the resilience and determination we strive to foster in grassroots sport.”
Matt James, the Chief Executive of WellChild, said: “We are deeply grateful to Spond for their commitment this year. Their sponsorship not only accentuates the valour of these children but also the unwavering commitment of healthcare professionals supporting them.”
“There are more children and young people than ever before in the UK living with long-term, serious health needs. The WellChild Awards 2023, in association with GSK, will be a unique opportunity to recognise and highlight the immense challenges they have faced and to celebrate the remarkable positivity, resilience and spirit they have demonstrated. It will also help us to shine a light on the dedication of those around them, from family members, professionals and volunteers who have gone above and beyond to help them through such challenging times.”
