Community Champion- a worthy winner

My Hexham Constituency Community Champion Awards were launched earlier this year to recognise the people making a difference in the local area. Last week I met recent winner Alan Bland,  who has raised £700 in aid of the Great North Air Ambulance by taking part in car rallies, most recently on the Isle of Mull. I really enjoyed meeting Alan and his wife Elizabeth, who has also raised money for the Great North Air Ambulance in the past doing parachute jumps, and I particularly enjoyed visiting the fantastic bar in their home! Alan is a very worthy winner, and just one of many people who are doing great things to help their communities.
