The Connor Saunders Foundation! Then the song 'What have you done today to make yourself proud' played as we stood up to collect the award. Mum, Dad, Callum & I stood on the stage to except the award as my incredible parents spoke about our hero. The emotions ran high through out us all just in a dream at what had just happened. We sat there listening to the rest of the awards and the inspirational people that were nominated then it came to the last award of the evening. The founder of Hand On Heart David Howarth took to the stage to speak about the nominees and the award, we sat there in awe listening to all the stories of all the people in this categorie with Connor. He then said those words winner for the special recogition goes to .... Connor Saunders. We all leaped up and screamed in joy we knew in our hearts that Connor deserved this award for the person he is - our true hero!! We all took to the stage to except this award for Connor and to say a few words to which there was a standing evation and lots of tears. So Connor was a Double Award Winner tonight!!
