How delighted were we last night … WE WON at the TouchFM Pride of Warwick District Awards, held at Chesford Grange Hotel, Kenilworth.
Dressed up in our finery, we excitedly met up with the special Sanchia Hansen, who WE had nominated for an award … !
We’re all looking excited and enjoying the evening, having a great meal and catching up with old friends and colleagues … then it’s all about to get a whole lot better! The lights dim, Kirsty’s on stage to host the evening and we’re off … Business Awards first and then the Community Awards, and here’s our category Carer of the Year, we’re thrilled to even have been nominated (second year in a row however!) and then they’re calling our name and we’re up on our feet, amazed and dazed heading for the stage!
Luckily Lynne had a few little words of thanks ready …. great speech, Lynne! And it’s back down to the table where we then heard that old friend Nicola Enoch had won Citizen of the Year for her long-standing group the Ups of Downs – well done Nicola!
Finally the icing on the cake …. our nominee Sanchia Hansen, our lovely 17 year old volunteer with our recent Siblings Group, won a Judges Special Achievement Award for her ongoing contribution of voluntary work with not just us but other great organisations across the area! How delighted does she look here!
So thanks again @102TouchFM for another fabulous Awards evening, supported again through the generosity of Phillips 66 and all the companies and organisations associated with the event …FSB, Cov & Warks Chamber of Commerce, Chesford Grange to name but a few!
Looking forward to next year already … nominations start next Spring!
