Touch FM Awards recognised in Parliament

The Touch FM Pride of Stratford Awards have been recognised in Parliament for their role in celebrating community heroes and local business.

A local MP brought up the initiative which was then praised by the Leader of the House.

Speaking in a debate last Thursday, Nadhim Zahawi MP for Stratford-on-Avon told the House of Commons it was a ‘privilege’ to attend Touch FM’s recent awards ceremony. Mr Zahawi praised the event for its commitment to raising awareness of the role business can play in local communities. In response, George Young, the Leader of the House of Commons, said he believed the Awards should be replicated elsewhere in the country.

Steve Orchard, Touch FM’s CEO said: “There’s no medium as potent as local commercial radio when it comes to creating positive community momentum. I am immensely proud of what Touch FM’s Pride of Stratford has achieved in its inaugural year – and to have that recognised in a House of Commons debate is both an honour and a thrill.”

Touch FM tells us preparations have already begun for next year’s event.
