The Cat 107.9 FM Launches New Community Hero Award

Article: Jonathan White

Local community radio station The Cat 107.9 FM has launched a new ‘Community Hero Award’.

The award is given to an individual who made extra special efforts, going above and beyond during the current Coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis.

Each Community Hero Award winner will receive a certificate, along with a special The Cat 107.9 FM cake expertly made by Gill Clark from ‘Baked by Gill’.

James Yates, Community Hero Award

The first recipient of a Community Hero Award was James Yates. During a local incident James protected a female police officer who was being attacked by a male suspected of being under the influence. James risked his life and subjected himself to potential infection to successfully stop the attack.
