The Radio Pembrokeshire Local Hero Awards 2019 gave you the chance to nominate and reward individuals who ‘go the extra mile’ and contribute so much to our communities.
The award ceremony took place at Wolfscastle Country Hotel on February 21st. Hosted by Radio Pembrokeshire’s Drivetime presenter Lee Jukes and special guest Connie Fisher, it was a very emotional evening supported by the local business community and special guests.
The night also helped raise money for Pembrokeshire charity ‘The DPJ Foundation’. Founded in July 2016, this charity supports people in rural communities who suffer with mental health issues. Find out more at: www.thedpjfoundation.com
Pre-dinner entertainment was provided by harpist Ioan Evans and X Factor star Jay James, who’s originally from Saundersfoot, brought the house down with his amazing voice and performance.
