Judges' Special Award


The highs & lows children’s choir

by Leicester Royal Infirmary

The judges said that the Highs & Lows children’s choir is a wonderful initiative - inclusive & inspiring in equal measure. The benefits of communal singing are well documented and the fact that the choir encompasses not only children with diabetes but their siblings too, means that all the children whose lives are affected by diabetes, be it directly or indirectly, are given the space to be equal. A simple initiative with a huge & positive impact.

Judges comment:

"Judges’ liked that this is a simple and original idea which gives the children confidence to be themselves and not just “a patient”. It is unique and being family orientated, builds trust between children, young people, parent groups and HCPs, which can be an additional support for years to come."
