A young amputee is calling for nominations for charity awards.

Sasha Burrell, 13, from Chorleywood, was last year's WellChild Award winner and is calling for people to nominate incredible young people or those who work with young people for this year's awards.

Miss Burrell had both legs amputated below the knee after a life-threatening infection and picked up her WellChild award at last year's glittering ceremony, where she spoke to the charity's royal patron, Prince Harry.

The Prince said: "These awards were created to shine a bright light on an amazingly brave group of children and young people, on their lives, and on the resolve they and their families have shown to overcome challenges.

"Life for families caring for seriously ill children is exceptionally tough. And without WellChild it is even tougher.

"Over the years, the WellChild Awards has played a huge part in highlighting what these families need, and the support that is desperately needed to meet the ever-increasing demand."

Claire Burrell, Sasha's mother, said: "Sasha had such a fantastic evening at the WellChild Awards in London.

"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."

Categories available include inspirational young person, most caring child, nurse, doctor, outstanding professional and health team.

The closing date for entries is April 9 and the awards take place in the autumn.
