Jamie Betts, from Long Eaton
Jamie, 14, has Asperger's syndrome so he finds it hard to manage being around lots of people. He has other difficulties including reduced vision in his left eye and tightening of the tendons and hamstrings in both his legs. Staff at Wilsthorpe Community School nominated him for throwing himself into catering, his favourite subject, and for settling well into school life.
Lily Waterall, from West Hallam
Lily, six, spreads her bubbly personality wherever she goes. Last year she was diagnosed with a serious brain infection that needed to be treated by a number of painful operations. She was in hospital for a long time but remained positive and made friends with other children on the ward. Doctors remarked on her ability to bounce back from operations and parents thanked Lily for being so kind and friendly to their children.
Daniel Franklin, from Ilkeston
Daniel, six, was given only a 10% chance of survival before he was born. However, he defied the odds, making it through three major operations before he was five. The bubbly youngster was born with a diaphragmatic hernia and depended on a ventilator 24 hours a day to help him breathe until he was three years old. Mum Julie Potter-Tate says even after everything he has been through he is a happy little boy with a great sense of humour. When he is not working hard at Charlotte Nursery and Infant School he is battling it out on the PlayStation with his older brother.
