Local Heroes 2018

What is the Charity Award?

The Charity Award at Eagle Radio's Local Heroes is given to an organisation or Registered Charity in Surrey and Hampshire that our community couldn't live without. 

Perhaps they provide care for children with learning difficulties, those with a long-term illness or fundraise for mental health or animal welfare. These are all organisations that are truly special and many of us depend on.

Meet Our Winner Simon Cowell

The nomination said...

"Simon runs the Wildlife Aid Foundation and has devoted his life to rescuing and saving Surrey's wildlife. He has given up his home in order to continue helping increasing numbers of animals. He works 24/7, sometimes through ill health and the charity, which is staffed by 300 volunteers, has saved hundreds of thousands of animals. It has been running for 40 years and at a time when most people are slowing down and retiring, Simon continues to be driven by his passion for the wild animals of Surrey and is about to start fundraising to develop a new, state of the art wildlife hospital, education centre and wetland in Leatherhead. It is a massive project but will a feather in Surrey's cap. An award will be testament to Simon's dedication."
