Each film was directed and produced by the children and families along with the support of Windmill Lane Recording Studios and script writers from Fair City.

From a Transformer themed story to Superman, Paw Patrol, Strictly Come Dancing, eight awards were presented on the night for a variety of categories.

Sharon Morrow, CEO of LauraLynn said: “At LauraLynn we have a wide variety of support programmes that help not just the child but also the entire family, and siblings are an important part of that.

"To grow up in a family with a child that has a life-limiting condition can be a challenge, not just for the child but also for the parents.

“What we try and do is to bring siblings together and give the them chance to meet with other children in similar situations.

"It’s important that they have the chance to just be children and this support can have massive positive impacts on the entire family.”
