Young Performer, sponsored by: MGY Estate Agents
The category of Young Performer recognises a young person achieving remarkable things in music, dance and other aspects of the arts despite disability.
Cerys is a dedicated young harpist who first came across a harp aged six and has loved it ever since. Unfortunately, her peers at school began bullying her for her love of music which resulted in her moving schools. She has many accomplishments including winning the Under 16s Harp Solo in the National Eisteddfod of Wales 2018 when only 10 years of age; she won the Urdd Hap Solo under 12s that same year. She was also first place in the Harp Duet (Open Age Category) in Gwyl Cerdd Dant 2019.
Michelle Bishop, director MGY Estate Agents, said:
“MGY are delighted to be in a position to sponsor the inaugural Child of Wales Awards. As one of Cardiff’s leading independent estate agents, we help families find and move into comfortable homes across the city every day, which is both rewarding and a pleasure.
“As a thank you for that custom, we believe it is important for us as a company (and for our staff) to support the communities in which we operate, whether that be through charitable donations, fundraising, sports coaching, or sponsorships.
“The Child of Wales Awards provides a platform for incredibly courageous children not just to tell their stories, but be rewarded for their achievements.
“We appreciate the impact that recognition will have on these inspirational children, and we feel incredibly humbled and honoured to be involved.”
