The team and I attended the Plymouth Drake Foundation awards on the Plymouth Hoe last night. A fantastic evening hearing the work the Plymouth Drake Foundation and its members undertake to help support the Plymouth Community and local Charities.

We were nominated for a Spirit of Community award and although we did not win, the groups and individuals who did were inspirational and a credit to Plymouth.

As one of the speakers of the night put it there are lots of people out there in Plymouth doing good work to help others, but very few will be recognised for their efforts.

If you’d like to get involved with helping the charities and communities within Plymouth be sure to visit the Plymouth Drake Foundation website:

We were pleased to have been nominated and thank you to everyone for your support :).
