The Oscars came to town and for eight deserving families this weekend.
Children’s charity LauraLynn organised the special event for eight children with life limiting conditions.
MC’d by top entrepreneur and Snapchat queen Marissa Carter, the dazzling event took place at the Odeon Cinema in Charlestown, where children got to walk the red carpet in style.
From a Transformer themed movie to Superman, Paw Patrol, Strictly Come Dancing eight awards were presented on the night for Best Adapted Movie, Best Comedy, Best Action Movie, Best Reality Entertainment, Best Animated Real Life Short, Best Adventure, Best Fantasy and Best Drama.
Speaking at the event, Marissa Carter said: “It was an honour to host the LauraLynn Oscars on behalf of these incredible children and their families.
“They’ve all worked so hard over the past few weeks screenwriting, producing and acting, of course, and have created some brilliant short films. It’s fantastic that we can give them a true red carpet experience.”
Working with families and siblings is a key area of support at LauraLynn. As part of the ongoing support for the family LauraLynn’s multidisciplinary team includes a music therapist, play specialist and psychologist.
A core part of the team’s activity is creating engaging memory making activities for the children and their families.
