2014 Highlights Video
For the past few months we have been on the search for this year's West Sussex Local Heroes. We had an unprecedented amount of nominations for truly amazing people, which made our job very difficult. Our team of judges had the hard task of reading all of the amazing stories of courage, determination, selfless acts, achievement and those that dedicate their lives to helping others, and then choosing who should be one of our 13 award winners.
All of the winners were chosen, contacted and invited to the award ceremony which took place on Friday 10th October. All at Spirit FM plus the award sponsors, winners and their guests gathered at The Avisford Park Hotel for a glamourous evening to honour some truly remarkable people.
Plus as this year marks both the centenary of WW1 and the 70th anniversary of D-Day, the awards were especially pertinent. On the evening we also paid tribute to the ‘local heroes’ who fought – and continue to fight – for our freedom; brave men and women to whom we owe so much. All money raised from our charity raffle was donated to The Royal British Legion, a fantastic charity who help serving members of the Armed Forces, ex-Service men and women, their families and dependents all year-round.
We couldn't invite all of our lovely listeners along, so instead we have a fabulous Local Hero Awards Highlights programme for you on Sunday 12th October. Simply tune in from 1pm- 4pm to find out who the deserved winners were and to hear their amazing stories.
