Pride Of Wales Awards

Prostate Cymru was the official charity partner and nominated charity for this year’s Nation Radio Pride of Wales Awards. The prestigious black tie ceremony, now in its fourth year, took place at The Vale Resort in Hensol on the evening of Thursday 13th June. Prostate Cymru’s Chairman Andy Thomas, Chief Executive Tina Tew and staff members Catherine Felton, Becky Havard, Chris Leyshon and Owen Pugsley attended the event on behalf of the charity.

The Nation Radio Pride of Wales Awards recognise and reward the unsung heroes in Wales that do amazing things for other people, family or the community without a second thought. The awards put a spotlight on the achievements of inspiring people in Wales in a range of different categories.

Guests enjoyed a three course meal and live entertainment. Performances included popular singer-songwriter and rising star Freya Ridings who performed original songs ‘Lost Without you’, ‘You Mean The World To Me’ and ‘Castles’ and All Together Now winner and Eurovision representative Michael Rice who sang his Eurovision hit ‘Bigger’, his new single ‘Neighbourhood’ and a cover of Rihanna’s ‘Love On The Brain’.

Prostate Cymru’s Chairman Andy Thomas presented the ‘Dad of the Year’ award to Stephen Owen at the ceremony hosted by radio DJs Lee Jukes and Angela Jay. Stephen, who wore a special Pride of Wales tartan kilt to the event, proved former teachers wrong when he achieved his dream of becoming a soldier and served his country in Afghanistan. Injured during service and now using a prosthetic leg, Stephen remains positive and inspires his young family everyday, encouraging them to never give up on their dreams and keep active through sports.

As the nominated charity at the event guests took part in a silent auction and raffle to raise funds for Prostate Cymru. The Nation Radio team presented Prostate Cymru with a cheque for £564.90 at the end of the evening, the proceeds raised by the raffle.
