Ask any four year old whether they would enjoy spending an evening with Ryder or the Paw Patrol pup-gang. You’ll be rewarded with a very happy little child.
This month little Esme Morgan’s dream came true when she was invited to London’s Soho Hotel to receive the Sky Award for Kindness from top model and celebrity mum-of-three, Vogue Williams.
They were joined by Paw Patrol’s exclusive star-studded team.
Esme, who was born with the debilitating condition Neurofibromatoses, which is a genetic disorder that causes tumors to form on nerve tissue anywhere in the nervous system, including the brain and spinal cord.
Over the last 12 months little Esme has raised an incredible £3,500 for children who have the same condition as herself.
“She really is the kindest child you could meet, and I’m not just saying that because I’m her mum,”Kate laughed from her family home in Y Rhos near Picton Castle.
“She’s always looking out for others and her little sister Betsi, and in the summer of 2021 she decided to raise money for children like herself by sliding down 100 slides all across Pembrokeshire.”
As a result, little Esme raised an incredible £2,300.
The little entrepreneur then decided to hold a pop-up shop at Rhos village hall, and once again her efforts brought in another healthy sum of £1,000.
“This was why we decided to enter her for the Paw Patrol Awards because what she achieved really has been considerable,”Kate was added.
At the tender age of 4, Kate was diagnosed as having Neurofibromatoses. Her first child was her concern so she monitored her closely.
“I noticed these large freckles appearing on her skin and this is one of the tell-tale signs of the condition,”She elaborated.
“So Esme had some tests and was diagnosed when she was six months old.”
Most tumours don’t turn out to be cancerous but some can lead to learning difficulties. But little Esme remains a perfectly strong and healthy child, both physically and intellectually.
Esme won her award after thousands of people shared stories from across the UK about their incredible, determined, and often very moving achievements.
“It’s been a real honour to be involved in the PAW Patrol Awards this year,”Vogue Williams.
“The children are truly inspirational and I’m so proud and humbled to be able to shine a spotlight on their achievements at this fantastic ceremony.”
