So this happened. Wow!
For seventeen years now my home town of Peterborough has run a Pride in Peterborough Awards event by which they invite nominations over the local papers and Heart FM for people who deserve some recognition for things they do.
I was humbled and honoured to be invited up for a ‘Special Recognition Award’ for my fundraising efforts for Anna’s Hope during my Marathon des Sables challenge in 2015.
It was so humbling to be recognised amongst such noble, selfless and brave people. Whilst I don’t do the things I do for trophies and meeting soap stars, it is still a very welcome honour to feel such appreciation.
It was a great event hosted by a lovely lady from Coronation Street who my mum was very excited to meet. (The old lady in the shot isn’t my Mum but a lovely lady 100 years young!)
