Unsung heroes to be honoured in Dorset Hall of Fame
FIVE of Dorset’s unsung heroes will be honoured in a glittering red carpet awards ceremony next month.
Tickets are now on sale for the glitzy second annual Dorset Hall of Fame event, organised by Heart 102.3 and backed by the Daily Echo and Teachers Building Society, at the Pavilion Ballroom in Bournemouth on Thursday, October 10.
This year’s five finalists, who will be revealed on the night, were chosen with great difficulty by the four judges Michaela Cotty from Heart FM and Daily Echo editor Toby Granville, plus Jo Legg and Anne Maton from Teacher's Building Society.
They had to select five from more than 120 nominations, during a rigorous selection process.
Heart 102.3 programme controller Simon Monk said: “We are looking forward to another night to remember as we induct more of those who help to make Dorset such a caring and fantastic community into our Hall of Fame.
The event celebrates those who work in the community for the benefit of others, often with little recognition, whether they are charity workers, teachers or business people.
Among the people honoured for their inspirational work last year was mental health worker Emer Kelly from Kings Park Hospital in Bournemouth.
She said: “Mental health work doesn’t normally get recognised in this way, so this was a complete honour, not only for me, but for everyone working in mental health in Dorset.”
