I am absolutely delighted to announce that I won the trophy for ‘Best Volunteer Presenter’ at the 2014 Pure awards.
The ceremony, which was held in the conference suite at Edgeley Park stadium in Stockport, was attended by over 100 volunteers from across a range of organisations linked to Pure Innovations. I was presented with the award by Jah Wobble, the original bass player with Public Image Limited.
Route 66, the weekly rock and blues show which I have presented live every Sunday for almost 2 years came 5th in the race for the best evening or weekend show award. We were pipped to the post by Pure’s ‘radio without barriers’ show called One Voice. The team of presenters and producers – many of whom have disabilities themselves – are worthy winners for their weekly show highlighting stories and issues around disability.
