Cheshire’s MIX56 honours the child superstars of the Kids Live @5 Awards 2023

Paul & Ian’s Saturday Club on 25th November brought together the nominees and winners of the Kids Live @5 Awards 2023 – along with special guests, Andy Carter MP, Clare Roberts OBE, MD or Kids Planet Day Nurseries and AJ Powell, the Lymm Town Crier.

Kids live at 5 is the weekly kids show on Mix56, and is sponsored by Kids Planet Day Nurseries.

The Kids live @5 Awards were announced this summer, looking for nominations for local children to be presented with one of six awards:

  • Determination Award
  • Fundraising Champion
  • Environmental Champion
  • Commitment to the Community
  • Commitment to Sports
  • Outstanding Achievement Award

After receiving hundreds of nominations, the winners were announced in the Kids live @5 show on 19 November.

The nominees and winners were then invited into the Saturday Club, to receive their award and for a chat on air.

The children were all fabulous. They were polite, confident, and enjoyed telling us all about why they had been nominated for an award.

The children who joined us on Saturday in the studio were:

Izzy Woods

Izzy is 9 years old and attends Oughtington Primary School. She won the Commitment to Sports award.

Izzy told us how she has been playing football since age 4.

Last season, she started challenging herself to learn and grow, starting the season with one team – then asked her parents to find another team to help take her out of comfort zone.

She joined a new team where she knew no one and even reached the championship final.

Wanting to improve more, Izzy trained along side further teams and undertook 1 to 1 coaching.

She has also recently joined a running club to help improve skills.

Izzy is very determined and committed to the game. Even though she may struggle with anxiety, Izzy still challengers herself.

Thomas Murphy

Thomas is aged 7 and attends High Legh Primary school.

Thomas won the Determination Award due to how he has dealt with his recently diagnosed allergies.

Thomas told us how he was born with a milk allergy, and as weaning, a further egg allergy.

One week before Christmas 2022, he was diagnosed with further allergies to coconut, raspberries and strawberries (his favourite), baked beans and nuts.

But Thomas has taken all this in his stride!  He is confident in asking for ingredients in foods, and it hasn’t stopped him doing anything!

Thomas attends 4th Lymm Beavers and regularly goes away on camp with them.

Berwin Carter

Berwin is aged 7 and attends Ravenbank Primary School.

Berwin won the Environmental Award after setting up an eco-club at school, encouraging others to think about saving the planet.
