Pudsey MP celebrates work of disabled children

A ceremony at the Houses of Parliament celebrated the work of children who are helping disabled people.
Pudsey MP Stuart Andrew hosted the event, attended by Prime Minister David Cameron, Shadow Chancellor Ed Balls, Coldplay lead singer Chris Martin and wheelchair basketball star Ade Adepitan. The ceremony honoured members of Whizz-Kidz, a charity which helps disabled children. Whizz-Kidz provides disabled children with wheelchairs and other mobility equipment they need to lead fun and active childhoods as well as encouraging disabled children to fulfil their potential and be ambassadors for people with disabilities.
The Campaigner of the Year award went to Nathan Popple, 15, of Cookridge, Leeds, who has cerebral palsy and who set up the Accessible Leeds website to make Leeds a better place for wheelchair users.
