First ambassador for 2023 awards announced
The inaugural Child of Britain Awards took place on Friday 24th June 2022, and was an incredible night of celebration for all involved. The evening shone a light on 14 amazing children and young people from all across Britain as well as showcasing fantastic entertainment from The Child of Britain Choir and Calum Scott with his tour band.
The awards will return in 2023 , and we are delighted to have support from many media partners, and sponsors.
As preparations get underway for the next installment, we are excited to unveil our first ambassador for the awards – Davin Sheikholeslami.
Davin, aged 17, was the recipient of the Bravery Award earlier in the year. Davin has overcome the traumatic armed burglary in his home, to become an amazingly driven young man. His passion to help us push the awards further and to help honour children and young people from across Britain makes him the perfect ambassador.
Of his involvement, Awards Founder Blanche Sainsbury said “It is fantastic to have Davin on board as an ambassador for the Child of Britain Awards. He is an inspiration to us all and we know that he will be a great role model for other young people who are nominated.”
Davin said "I first found out about the Child of Britain Awards when I was nominated by my parents for the Bravery Award, from that moment on it changed my life. I went on to win and this allowed me to view a very traumatic event with a new, positive perspective.
The night of the awards was extremely inspiring from start to finish - the choir, the auction, and most importantly the other winners, truly made for an unforgettable night.
I knew I had to get involved in any way I could. Not only because the event is full of joy and music, but because it shines a light on absolutely extraordinary children - bringing some positivity that the world could certainly use.
As an ambassador for the awards, I plan to raise awareness of the awards, specifically in Yorkshire, but also as wide as I can. In addition, I can't wait to help with the planning and execution of the night so the next award winners can also experience an undeniably amazing night. "
