Not long left to vote (5pm deadline) Best wishes for tonight Maisie. We're all with you!

Maisie Black

A model student at Hamiltonsbawn P.S. seven-year-old Maisie Black is a beacon of light for today’s youth. Behind her radiant smile is one of the most caring, young individuals you will ever meet. When her friend and classmate Ella Anderson was diagnosed with a life-changing illness, Maisie immediately began to try to help Ella. In the summer of 2023, Maisie climbed Slieve Donard, raising almost £4000 to go towards helping Ella on the road to recovery. Everyone would be blessed to have a friend such as Maisie Black.
