And the winners are…

And the winners are…

Date: 24th July 2021 | By: Kelly Jenkins

On July 23rd around 60 excited guests gathered around their screens and joined the live Wales Children's Activities and Services Awards 2021 virtual event in association with principal sponsor Beaming Babies.

The evening was hosted by Ross Jenkins and saw interactive shout outs, a guest speaker talk from Andy Georgiou, an exciting award ceremony presented by the sponsors and a competition giveaway of one year free membership to the Institute of Children's Activity Providers (ICAP). Guests made the most of proceedings with some hiring in projector screens and glamorous party set ups, others watched live from lovely hotels and others got together with family at home to enjoy the event.

Organiser of the event, Kelly Jenkins said, "I have to admit I had reservations about doing this event online. It had been such a feel good event when we hosted from The Village Hotel in January 2020, I was worried this may feel flat and I didn't want to let our finalists down after all their hardwork. But in actual fact, last night was more special than I could have imagined. To see winners rejoice with their families at home, who may not have necessarily been able to attend a face to face event, for me was special. I choked up a little when one of our winners said to her 4 year old daughter "Mummy won!" I send my congratulations to all of our winners and finalists, along with thanks to our judges and sponsors".
