On Thursday Medina Foodservice were delighted to support the award for Emergency Services at the Local Heroes event hosted by Isle of Wight Radio.
The glitzy ceremony gives people a chance to show their appreciation by nominating the unsung heroes of the Island. Categories cover everything from sports person, fundraiser and tourism ambassador to volunteers, carers and inspirational leader.
On the night, the award for the Medina Foodservice Emergency Service Local Hero went to the incredible team at Wight SAR (Search and Rescue). Wight SAR provide skilled volunteers to assist Hampshire Constabulary and other agencies in searches for vulnerable missing persons on the Isle of Wight and rely on donations from the public and support from sponsors to fund their team.
What makes this award even more special is that our Managing Director, Steve Ross, actually got to present it to one of our colleagues, Chris Jeffrey, who has assisted Wight SAR in their work for a considerable number of years.
That’s right, we have heroes working here!
