A five-year-old boy with cancer met his favourite celebrities at an event to honour a charity’s work in research.

Tristan Zadeh from Wimbledon was the guest of honour at the stars and space themed Little Star Awards party, held by Cancer Research UK and TK Maxx at the Kensington Roof Gardens in London.

Tristan and his family met several well-known faces, including EastEnders stars Maddy Hill, who plays Nancy Carter, Maisie Smith, who plays Tiffany Butcher, and Jamie Borthwick, who plays Jay Mitchell, before receiving his Little Star Awards medal during a presentation ceremony.

Tristan, who was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (ALL) last year was one of 21 children from across the UK who came together as ambassadors to represent the 500 children who received Little Star Awards in 2013/14.

He enjoyed an afternoon of galactic-inspired games and astronomical activities including experiments with dry ice, slime making, rocket launching and sampling freeze-dried astronaut ice-cream.

Tristan’s father Jonathan, who works as a car fleet co-ordinator and mother Ewa, who is a psychiatrist, said Tristan thoroughly enjoyed the event on Saturday June 21.
