Local Hero Awards - March 6th 2009

Very surprised to be nominated for The Local Hero Award, an annual awards event sponsored by the Uxbridge Gazette and Uxbridge College.

Invited to the presentation evening which was very professionally organised and was even more surprised when I was awarded the Local Hero Award for fundraising.

As well as the trophy I was also given a cheque for £250. I have decided to spend £120 on my six grandchildren and donate the remaining £130 to The Royal Marsden Hospital.

Many thanks to the Uxbridge Gazette and Uxbridge College for organising such a great event and making all the participants feel very special. More thanks to Ian Dobie from St George for nominating me and to all my many sponsors who without their wonderful support I would not have even been considered for the award.
