When the Gazette announced the Community Champion Awards for 2012 a few people noticed that there was a category for Champion Ambassador and started to mention that I should be put forward for my work with Refresh Teesside.

Luckily not everyone just talked about it and Rick Trotter filled out the form to nominate me. I got a lovely full page spread in the Gazette and some great coverage for Refresh Teesside. The article was also posted online. Huge thanks to Rick for filling out the form and to everyone else who commented on Twitter saying I should be nominated.

Yesterday I was contacted by Lesley from the Gazette to inform me that I have been short-listed for the Community Champion Awards 2012 in the Champion Ambassador award category! Wahooo!

So on Friday 30th November 2012 I will be heading to the Riverside Stadium with my lovely wife to enjoy a drinks reception, three course dinner and award presentations.

Wish me luck!
