1st Local Legend Award Presented

Local radio station, The Cat 107.9FM, have recently presented their first Local Legend monthly award, which follows on from the weekly Community Hero Award that the radio station ran earlier in the Covid-19 pandemic. The Local Legend Award looks to recognise the work of local individuals and organisations who have gone that extra mile in support of their communities.

Chris Cadman, Angela Leighton, Gill Clark and Dave Foulkes

The Local Legend Award is sponsored by ‘Baked by Gill’ with winners being drawn out of a hat to receive a wonderful cake, Cat 107.9FM goodies and a certificate.

The Local Legend award for November has been presented to Angela Leighton, the Community Champion at ASDA Crewe, who received her Cat Cake from sponsor Baked by Gill & certificate from The Cat’s MD Chris Cadman and presenter David Foulkes.

Angela co-ordinates all the charitable donations and liaises with lots of local charities who request support for raffle prizes etc.

Chris Cadman, Managing Director of The Cat said “As the local community radio station we want to recognise the fantastic efforts and contributions made by the phenomenal, caring people in the area to support others less fortunate. Angela being the first Cat 107.9 Local Legend will be followed by many other deserving local people and groups who go that extra mile in these difficult and challenging times. Congratulations Angela “
