Local radio station, The Cat 107.9FM, have recently presented their fifth 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 March Local Legend award was presented to Roger Morris who received his Baked by Gill Cat Cake, Cat goodies and a Local Legend certificate from Cat 107.9FM Managing Director Chris Cadman, presenter David Foulkes and sponsor Gill Clark of ‘Baked by Gill’.
Roger from Crewe Honda Centre motorcycle dealership on West Street in Crewe converted a large section of the showroom into a vaccination centre which can deliver up to 1,200 vaccinations a week. Roger has refused payment as a gesture to help the local community in the fight against the pandemic.
Chris Cadman, Managing Director of The Cat said, “It was an honour to present the Local Legend award to Roger and his team. We have the pleasure of presenting a number of these awards to fantastic, hardworking people in the community however there can be none more deserving than Roger and his team.
“Their tireless efforts to provide the local facilities and opportunity for thousands of people to get safely vaccinated against this dreadful virus. Many Congratulations Roger and a big thank you.”
Roger added “I am absolutely delighted to receive this award for myself and everyone involved in the Vaccination Centre, I will be sharing it with everyone involved.
“A big thank you to everyone at The Cat FM for their continued support and in recognising what is possible when the community pulls together and makes things happen.”
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 and 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.
