Local Heroes 2018

We're proud to support those who are ‘making a difference’


It is that time of year again, when Isle of Wight Radio holds its annual Local Heroes Awards.

The awards celebrate the amazing range of good work carried out by people across the Isle of Wight. This year (2018) there are 13 award categories, ranging from Fundraiser of the Year to Young Achiever and Island Roads is, once again, very proud to sponsor the 'Make a Difference Award'.

As a local company, we think it’s important to make a difference to our Island community. Through our volunteering scheme and charitable foundation, our staff have donated hundreds of days to help local causes, doing everything from gardening and beach cleans to goat herding! We know the positive impact this has and are keen to highlight the work of others who are also making a difference on the Isle of Wight.

Nominations for this year's Local Heroes Awards have now closed and we look forward to seeing who the winners are at the awards ceremony on Thursday 8 November.
