Award For Radio Service (Wirral Globe)

The Leverhulme Award The Wirral Globe wrote: "A Wirral charity has become the first independent organisation to win a special trophy for improving the life of patients at Clatterbridge Hospital. Radio Clatterbridge was presented with the Lord Leverhulme Merit Award by the hospital’s League of Friends at their annual general meeting last week. The award, named after the League’s former president who died in 2000, is presented biennially to departments or organisations which play a major contribution to hospital life. The Chairman of Radio Clatterbridge, Steve Lord, accepted the surprise award. He said, 'It’s a great honour and very humbling to win this accolade. It’s a fitting tribute to the hard work of all of our members who give up their free time to improve the lives of all of the people at Clatterbridge.' Mr Lord thanked the League of Friends for their continued support and briefed guests about the station’s plans to be broadcasting on medium wave in time for its 60th anniversary next April."
