In the evening of Thursday 2nd October 2014, Chairman Andy and Team Leader Pete, accompanied by a few other team members attended the 2BR Local Hero Awards.
The awards were held at the home of Burnley FC, Turf Moor, and organised by one of our local radio stations, 2BR. The awards aim to recognise those in the local community who have excelled in what they do and have gone beyond the average.
Andy was nominated for the Charity Worker Award and Pete for the Public Service Person Award. The nomination came as a surprise to them both until they were invited to the black tie award ceremony.
The judges read various entries for the catagories but came to the decision that Pete and Andy had gone above and beyond for the local community. The awards were a surprise, but hopefully a pleasant one, for Andy and Pete. Our work doesn’t usually get public recognition but in this case it is amazing to be recognised in the local community, the community whom we serve.
Our thanks go to 2BR and the sponsors of the evening, we rarely get the opportunity to have an evening and get dressed up let alone for a couple of our key members to get some recognition for what they do in the local community.
