Three volunteers from Radio Northwick Park have been shortlisted at a local Heros Awards for their volunteer radio work.
The ceremony, held by Harrow Council, honoured those who have contributed heavily to voluntary services in the Harrow area.
Volunteers Matt Blank, Heena Tailor and Keith Chilvers were nominated in three categories, Trustee/Committee Member of the Year, Health and Wellbeing Volunteer of the Year and Community Volunteer of the Year respectively.
Councillor David Perry opened the night and said: “These awards are a ways of acknowledging, celebrating and thanking such volunteers for all the hard work, commitment and support they have generously provided to the Harrow community.”
Whilst Radio Northwick Park didn’t win any awards, it wasn’t all bad news. Emma Senitt from the Alan Senitt Memorial Trust won the Trustee/Committee Member of the Year award.
Emma has been a close friend of Radio Northwick Park for many years and collaborated with RNP to hold an event in 2010. Her work with RNP was noted in the judges’ comments.
Speaking about the night, Matt said: “It was wonderful to be in a place with so many people that have done so much good for the people of Harrow and to have the hard work we do recognised.”
