Child of Wales Awards 2022 – We are delighted to announce our Host for the evening!

With the Child of Wales Awards fast approaching, preparations are running full steam ahead. We are thrilled to finally be able to honour our amazing winners and celebrate with our sponsors and  guests.

We are so excited to announce that the awards will be hosted by TV Presenter and broadcaster – Gethin Jones.

Gethin’s career started almost 20 years ago on S4C. You can currently see him every day at 9.15am on Morning Live and popping up on The One Show on BBC One . He loves a challenge, taking on numerous triathlons to raise money for charity. Gethin and his friend Sion have nephews with autism, and set up “Nai” (Welsh for nephew) to raise awareness and funds for children with autism in Wales.

Proud of his Welsh heritage, we felt Gethin was the perfect host to help us recognise these incredible children:

“I was delighted to say yes immediately. A wonderful idea and no doubt an incredibly emotional night ahead. I have one job, and that’s to help to recognise and celebrate some unbelievably brave children. Children who are helping others, whilst facing their own adversity. It’s impossible not to be inspired”.

Child of Wales Founder, Blanche Sainsbury said

"We are delighted that Gethin will be hosting our inaugural child of wales awards.  Flying the flag for our Welsh Winners, their families and the charities that support them, I’ve no doubt it will be an incredible night with Gethin in charge."
