Thank you to everyone who voted in my Local Hero award this year.
Over 30 groups or individuals were nominated for the award this year, a testament to the incredible community spirit here in Wansbeck.
While all the nominees are heroes in our eyes Natalie & Johnny Kerr are worthy winners.
Before Natalie sadly passed away earlier this year herself and Johnny tirelessly documented their journey and raised awareness for cancer research and have been a source of inspiration and hope for thousands.
Johnny continues to keep Natalie’s legacy alive today and has been working on teaming up with Claire’s Chance and other groups to raise awareness for cancer research.
Thank you as well to everyone who sent in their design for my Christmas card competition. Unfortunately I have been unable to send out Christmas cards as normal this year, but have sent out an electronic version instead.
