TWO young volunteers have been rewarded for their dedicated work at Northwick Park Hospital Radio Station.
Miles Otway and Niam Radio were both given Jack Petchey outstanding achievement awards after being nominated by fellow volunteers at the charity, which broadcasts to patients at the Watford Road hospital in Harrow.
They have each won the charity £200 through the Jack Petchey Foundation, an organisation that rewards programmes and projects that benefit young people.
Miles, 24, a civil servant from Harrow Weald, is the station’s current best fundraiser.
He said: “I am ecstatic and so honoured to receive the Jack Petchey Award. It’s such a humbling experience to be recognised by your peers for the work that you put into charity.”
Niam, 16, from Harrow, a student at Queen Elizabeth’s Boys School in Barnet, started volunteering for the charity in September last year.
He said: “I’m very honoured and grateful for winning the Jack Petchey award. Thank you very much to all who participated and nominated me.”
