White Rose Finalist 2011 and 2012!

2 October 2012

What another amazing night at the Welcome to Yorkshire White Rose Awards. A finalist for the second year running! Fantastic! But what made the night so special for me was meeting Hannah Cockroft the Yorkshire Para-Olympian - T34 100m. She was such an inspiration. 'Dream Big' I actually held her medal! Surprisingly heavy! Also spoke to Andy Hodge, from local village Hebden (they now have a gold postbox) - a great Olympic gold rower. What a nice guy - AND tall, blond and handsome! The Emmerdale crew were there too. And we heard the new single of 'Ilkley Moor Ba' Tat - all proceeds to the Yorkshire Regiment - should be a great single for Christmas.

Wow what a night to remember. I have always known there is not a better place to be than Yorkshire and this night confirmed it!
