In spite of multiple health issues, Bradley is a brave and caring boy, keen to ensure those around him are happy. His aunt says he is so generous he would give you his last sweet.

Scarlett Lloyd-Jones, from Hilton
Scarlett, 12, has a large cyst in her abdomen, which puts pressure on her spleen. Because of this condition, she has a low immune system and is in constant pain and discomfort. Things are even more difficult for Scarlett, a pupil at John Port School, as both her parents have been diagnosed with illnesses too, but she is determined to have as little time off school as possible and always has a happy outlook. She is an excellent student who always gives her all. Her teachers say she's a "real superstar".
