The Radio Pembrokeshire Local Hero Awards 2020
The Radio Pembrokeshire Local Hero Awards 2020 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 the Wolfscastle Country Hotel on Thursday February 13th 2020.
Hosted by Radio Pembrokeshire drive time presenter Lee Jukes and our wonderful guest presenter Connie Fisher, it was a very emotional evening supported by the local business community and special guests.
Once again, we’d like to thank all our category sponsors. Without your support, this event would not have been possible.
Thanks to the generosity of all who attended, our raffle draw raised much needed funds our nominated not for profit community organisation: Get The Boys A Lift, working to better improve the mental health within the community.
Having recently taken on a premise earlier in 2019, they now run a coffee shop that doubles as a drop in centre. Providing services ranging from counselling to drug and alcohol support, their clothing and coffee sales allow them to keep these services free and readily available for those in need. All services are anonymous and counselling is open to anybody of any age.
There mission is simple, to do everything within the best interest of our community.
A big thank you to the brilliant Max George, formally from the successful band the Wanted, Max has been busy over the last 18 months following the release of the massive hit ‘Barcelona’, he has performed at a host of festivals and other live events throughout the UK and Ireland, and tonight he’s here to perform for us.
