As you may have seen in Coldplay's tweet earlier, Chris Martin and Phil Harvey attended the Whizz Kids Awards in London today, during which they surprised Whizz-Kidz Ambassador Conor with an award at the star-studded Kidz Unlimited Awards ceremony, held at the House of Commons. More on this event is at the Coldplay forum now [thanks Tash]Chris presented Conor McKenna, 16, from Northern Ireland with the Inspirational Young Person Award. Prime Minister David Cameron also made an appearance and a brief speech at the event.Chris Martin said: "Thank you so much to Whizz-Kidz for letting me be come and be part of this very special event – in a place my dad always wanted me to work, but I never could make it! It’s an honour to present the amazing Inspirational Young Person of the Year Award to Conor McKenna. Having lost so many awards you wouldn’t believe, I can tell you to be nominated in itself is amazing – so well done to everyone."
Ruth Owen OBE, Whizz-Kidz’s Chief Executive said: "Whizz-Kidz is honoured to have been joined by Chris Martin and the Prime Minister to celebrate young disabled people’s hard work, talent and dedication to their communities. Our annual Kidz Unlimited Awards demonstrate the fantastic role models young disabled people can be for their peers and other youngsters."Whizz-Kidz changes the lives of disabled children in the UK by providing them with mobility equipment, training and advice; we give them much more - the independence to be themselves.More tweets/photos from earlier today:
