Our very own David Lawrence Jones nominated for Local Award

We are pleased to announce that our very own Patron and Local Author, David Lawrence Jones has been nominated for  a Palm FM  “Local Heroes 2015 Awards”.

Here’s what David says:

I’m absolutely thrilled and so excited with this fantastic news… it’s all rather humbling actually! Following my nomination, I’ve reached the semi-finals in the category of “Most Influential Male or Female”.

Recognition for the award acknowledges three main activities David has undertaken over the past year within the local community. Firstly, his free author visits promoting literacy in ‘Local Schools’ to encourage children to read more books and write more stories. It also recognises his fantastic work as an active patron of ‘Families for Children’, and finally recognises his role as chancellor for Torbay’s ‘Children’s University (CU) Trust’, which enables 7 to 14 year olds (and 5 to 6 year olds with their families) to participate in exciting and innovative learning activities and experiences outside normal school hours.

We need your help!

Lets help David win this category!

The finalists will be chosen from a public vote. If you would like to cast a vote for David, you can do so by following this link:
