One of the stations that Lee’s drivetime show is networked across is Swansea Bay Radio. The station broadcasts across Swansea, Neath Port Talbot & South Carmarthenshire. Every year, the team at Swansea Bay Radio award inspirational young people from across the area by holding the Swansea Bay Young Achiever Awards.
This year, the Swansea Bay Young Achiever Awards were sponsored by Tata Steel. With the steelworks in Port Talbot, Tata works hard to get involved in the community and sponsoring events like this is something that they do often.
Attended by the Lord Mayor of Swansea and the Mayor of the County Borough of Neath Port Talbot, the evening was held at the Towers Hotel & Spa on Thursday 24th November. It was a red carpet event that celebrated some unique and inspirational youngsters who have excelled and achieved great things.
The evening was hosted by Lee alongside Helen Enser-Morgan, one of Swansea Bay Radio’s reporters. Entertainment was provided by the boyband Yes Lad who appeared on the X Factor in 2016. Lee said “Awards events like the Swansea Bay Young Achiever Awards are so important. There are so many truly talented and unsung young heroes in our area and sometimes the hard work and dedication that they put in go unnoticed. This kind of event gives these young people the recognition that they deserve and also helps to inspire other people too! Congratulations to all the winners.”
