Radio Carmarthenshire Local Hero Awards 2017!
On Friday, July 7th, we held our annual Radio Carmarthenshire Local Hero Awards at Parc y Scarlets, proudly supported by Llanelli Motor Company. The evening was hosted by Lee Jukes from Radio Carmarthenshire Drivetime and our Reporter, Helen Enser Morgan.
Every day there are special people in the community doing amazing things that truly make a difference. These awards help to recognise and reward the unsung local heroes across Carmarthenshire.
After receiving a number of nominations, the judges certainly had their work cut out deciding on finalists and a winner for each category.
