Meet the winner of ‘Britain’s Best Friend’!
Ffion, 12, from Caerphilly in Wales, was nominated by her best friend Ella Day. There were over 1,000 entries altogether, and we’d like to say a big thank you to everyone who took part.
Dance stars Twist and Pulse chose the ten finalists, and the ultimate winner was decided in an online poll which attracted nearly 10,000 votes!
In her nomination statement, Ella wrote: “I have an illness that requires lots of medication and Ffion knows everything that I need and she makes sure that I take every dose that I need. I broke my leg in October and when I started back at school she pushed me anywhere and everywhere in my wheelchair.”
Ffion and Ella have each won £250, a sweetie hamper and a set of My Blue Nose Friends goodies. In addition, Ffion received a PS3 with microphones and SingStar2 game, while Ella won a camcorder. The girls were presented with their prizes by Twist and Pulse during a surprise assembly at their school.
Ffion said of the day: “We were so excited to win the competition. Ella and I are massive My Blue Nose Friends fans and then to have Twist & Pulse present us with our prizes in our own school was amazing! We even got to have a photo shoot with them too, so we were celebrities in school for the day – we couldn’t stop smiling!”
