There's something wonderful about watching people receive an award they've striven for, and especially when the recipients are kids and young adults. The recipients of last night's Children's Charity Network Awards were deservedly proud and excited: the standard of both writing and visual art was extremely high – it was incredible to realise just how young the winners were, after seeing the quality of their work.
Congratulations to Paul Collins and Meredith Costain, and all the other Ambassadors, for a night that was obviously the culmination of a great year of promoting literacy around the country.
