A CHEEKY toddler from Dunmow has become the poster boy for a world famous hospital this month.
Two-year-old Henry Catton became the face of Great Ormond Street Children's Hospital after the little tot was snapped by hospital staff during a visit to test for food allergies and a bowel condition in December 2007.
Mother Tara from Upper Mill Field, came into the Broadcast office beaming with pride. "I couldn't believe it when we went back to visit," she said. "His little face was all around the wards on posters and leaflets, we really are so proud of him."
Henry is a little boy with a big smile, and his curly black hair really left the Ormond Street publicisers in no doubt that he fitted the bill perfectly.
He has been in the care of hospital staff for about a year now due, to a condition that doesn't allow him to eat dairy foods. "He has to take antibiotics every day," said Tara. "We have to monitor his diet very carefully, but staff at the hospital have been so great with him, we really can't thank them enough."
The posters are promoting the hospital's friends scheme, which helps to raise money for vital equipment through voluntary work and donations.
