Health Play Specialist of the Year 2020

We are so thrilled to announce that this year’s Health Play Specialist of the Year is the incredible Lisa Beaumont from Leeds Children’s Hospital.

Lisa has dedicated 32 years of her life to helping children in hospital, by providing play and distraction to support young patients in the medical setting.

During our virtual awards presentation, Lisa shared the news with her team that, not only has she won, but that the Leeds Children’s Hospital Play Team have also won Starlight’s first ever Play Team of the Year! A double win for a team that have gone above and beyond to provide play for their patients under difficult circumstances.

The awards are once again supported by Ryman, with our very worth winners receiving a year’s worth of arts and crafts materials to keep their playrooms stocked up.
