I was honoured to meet some amazingly inspirational people when I hosted the Radio Pembrokeshire Local Hero Awards 2017 on Friday 24th February at the Wolfscastle Country Hotel!
My guest co-host for the evening was Pembrokeshire’s very own West End star and Songs of Praise presenter, Connie Fisher. It was a joy to work alongside Connie. She is such a beautiful person. We had lots of other beautiful people at our very glitzy evening too!
The event was sponsored by the Bluestone Foundation. They help so many people and organisations throughout Pembrokeshire and it was amazing to have their support once again this year. We had ten inspirational award winners and then handed out a very special award at the end.
The community pulls together in Pembrokeshire and this theme was something that joined up the evening and the people in the room. It was a humbling evening with some individual and emotional stories of true grit, determination, kindness and inspiration.
Congratulations to every single winner and their families. I hope to host the next Radio Pembrokeshire Local Hero Awards next year!
