Technology4good awards Winner
Vintage Radio went to the Finalist awards ceremony in London 7th June and learnt that they were the winner for the Community Voices award at the national Technology4good (click here to go to their web site) awards. Gordon Nicholas - chairman, Chris Yougman - Programme Coordinator and Ken Harper - Senior Engineer, attended the ceremony.
There were over 200 entries nationwide. The shortlists were selected by representatives of T4G partner organisations and a panel of judges from the worlds of business and charity met to choose the winners. The presentation was made by TV and radio presenter Mariella Frostup during the ceremony at the BT Centre, St Paul's, London..
For us here at Vintage Radio to win a such a national award is fantastic. The success must be shared and enjoyed by all teh volunteers here at Vintage Radio as we each all in our own way have contributed to the winning of this national award which we are extremely proud to have won.. We also came extremely close to being "best in show" out of all the eight categories during the ceremony which is quite something given the strength of the other contestants.Here are some of the pictures taken (first three photos are by Ray Gibson, the 4th by Kim Townsend and the last by Gordon Nicholas) during and after the ceremony.
