Minster FM Celebrates Local Heroes

Local Heros

6:00am 16th February 2013

Minster FM has held its 11th Local Hero Awards in a glittering ceremony at York Racecourse last night.

Dignitaries from across North Yorkshire came to celebrate the achievements of local people.

The overall winner from the 12 categories was Mary Chapman from Great Ouseburn who won the Charity Fundraiser Award for her work helping unwanted and rescued animals through her charity Nuzzlets.

Station Manager Bridget Davies said “It’s always a highlight of the year when we get the chance to ask our 72,000 listeners who has made a difference to their lives.”

“The choice gets harder every year and we had some outstanding nominees and winners but I’m delighted to recognise the hard work that Mary and others like her do to change people’s lives in York and North Yorkshire.”

“I would also like to thank all those in the business community who come forward and support our Local Hero Awards, they really help us make it a night to remember!”
