A SCHOOLGIRL has been given an award by the prime minister for bringing happiness for children in hospital.

Six-year-old Hannah Robinson, from Victoria, got the “point of light” award from Theresa May for launching an appeal to bring presents to other young patients. 

Hannah has a rare genetic condition and narrowly avoided spending Christmas in hospital herself but was able to deliver more than 70 bags of goodies, including toys, books and colouring pencils to other children. 

In a personal letter Ms May wrote: “The care you are showing to others with your Hope Appeal is giving children in hospital a very special Christmas. Your courage shows that anyone at any age can make a tremendous impact on the lives of others.”
