I was very privileged to attend the fantastic West Cumbria Community Hero Awards last night held at the lovely Whitehaven Golf Club.
The audience listened to many inspirational stories about local people. Every nominee was so worthy of being at the event and even though most categories had one winner, some had two, it was apparent to even be a nominee was an award in itself.
There are some fantastic things going on in West Cumbria and the event was a celebration of many great personal and team achievements.
Award winners were given in the following categories:- Carer of the Year, Neighbour of the Year, Most Courageous Young Person, Young Achiever, Child of the Year, Sporting Hero, Best Community Project, Unsung Hero, Volunteer of the Year, Parent of the Year, Good Friend, School Worker of the Year, and West Cumbria’s Person of the Year.
The winner though without any doubt is the community of West Cumbria itself – with people like the nominees and winners living and working in the local community the area is in safe and caring hands.
The evening was fantastic so I extend a huge well done to the organisers. I will be back next year – try and stop me!
