Local Heroes 2018

What is the Neighbour Award?

The Neighbour Award at Eagle Radio's Local Heroes is given to someone who helps those on their doorstep making sure the rest of the road is happy all year round.

From taking in peoples bins to scraping off cars in the Winter or setting up a youth club and campaigning against anti-social behaviour, this one person makes your street worth living on.

Meet Our Winner, Irene Bower

Irene is such a wonderfully kind and giving person, who always has a smile on her face no matter what and touches everyone's hearts in unique ways.

She walks the local children to school, using her trolley to carry their book bags and often surprising them with treats but would never ask for anything in return.

Despite her own challenges and caring for her own husband, Irene is always cheerful and never stops caring for others, a true pillar to the community.  The ultimate good neighbour!
