Gethin Jones returns to host awards for 2nd year

Date: 16th March 2023 | By: national

Just over one week today in excess 450 guests from across Wales will gather at the Mercure Holland House Hotel in Cardiff to honour 13 young heroes. 9 months of hard work will culminate in an inspirational evening of celebration for all involved.

We are delighted to announce that Gethin Jones will return to host the award for the 2nd year in a row. Gethin’s diverse career and vast experience in hosting events such as these makes him the perfect host once again.

Gethin started his career almost 20 years ago on S4C and you will currently see him on your screens every week day at 9.15am on Morning Live. He loves a challenge and raising money for charity and has today started a 24hr dance-a-thon to raise money for Comin Relief. We wish him the best of luck!

Gethin Jones, said“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 over the moon that Gethin will be hosting the awards once again. Last year Gethin met the inspirational winners and their families.  He is a huge support, and we are lucky to have him take such an interest in our winners stories whilst helping raise funds for children’s charities. 

We know that his knowledge and professionalism will help to make our winners and guests feel welcome on the night.”
