Inspirational Pride of Britain winner and Acorns Children’s Hospice Ambassador Moin Younis was guest of honour at the House of Lords last week (Thursday 23 November) for a special charity event.
The event, organised by Hospice UK for supporters of the hospice sector, saw Moin share his story in a Q&A with Hospice UK CEO, Toby Porter, before taking questions from the floor.
Moin, 23, spoke powerfully about the vital work of hospices, how Acorns made a huge difference in his life and the memorable moment David Beckham surprised him at the Pride of Britain Awards.
He said: “I don’t think I’d be alive it wasn’t for Acorns Children’s Hospice, because the condition I have, it’s cruel, but every time I was going through something – Acorns was there to support me.
“Whether it was to go there for a week and get my mind off the pain, they were there. I couldn’t thank them enough for what they do.”
