Radio Carmarthenshire Local Hero Awards 2019!
The Radio Carmarthenshire Local Hero Awards 2019 gave you the chance to nominate and reward individuals who ‘go the extra mile’ and contribute so much to our communities.
The award ceremony took place at the Best Western Diplomat Hotel & Spa, Llanelli on October 10th.
Hosted by Radio Carmarthenshire’s presenters Lee Jukes and Tommo, it was a very emotional evening supported by the local business community and special guests.
Once again, we’d like to thank all our category sponsors and title sponsor: Actif Sports & Leisure. Without your support, this event would not have been possible.
Thanks to the generosity of all who attended, our raffle draw raised much needed funds our nominated charity: The Ty Bryngwyn is the Specialist Palliative Care Unit, located at Prince Philip Hospital, Llanelli.
Its aims are to support, empower and improve the quality of life of patients living
with a life limiting illness. Ty Bryngwyn is also there for patients’ families and friends.
Along with the 7 bed in-patient unit they offer Day Support Therapies and Community
Services. These are delivered by a dedicated team of professionals which
Include consultant doctors, clinical nurse specialists, physiotherapists, occupational
therapists, counsellors and volunteers.
A big thank you to the amazing Shellyann who sang for us and absolutely smashed it! Shellyann is the a brilliant Welsh singer songwriter who, not only did Wales proud appearing on The Voice in 2015, but in March this year she was the overall winner of the Saturday night TV show “All Together Now”.
You’ll be able to hear the highlights from the event on a special programme on Radio Carmarthenshire this Thursday evening October 17th between 7pm and 9pm.
