Ten “incredible” young people and a children’s charity were honoured in the 10th annual Yorkshire Children of Courage Awards held in Leeds at the weekend.

It was Christine’s third year hosting the Yorkshire Children of Courage Awards.

“The stories of courage and bravery we hear never fail to astonish and move me”, she added.

"The lovely thing is that every one of the children and young people honoured are overwhelmed and surprised by winning, they don’t realise how amazing they are.
