Daryl Farmer, his partner Sabine Granger and members of EastEnders and BBC Radio Sussex Presenter Allison Ferns

Two volunteers from East Sussex Wildlife Rescue & Ambulance Service attended last night BBC Sussex & Surrey Community Heroes Awards 2017 at Gatwick Plazza Hotel. 

Congratulations to volunteers Kathy Martyn and Daryl Farmer, who attended the awards last night. Kathy was a finalist in the Animal Welfare Awards and Daryl a finalist in the Fundraiser Award. As if that wasn't enough, Daryl won his category to everyone's delight after his amaziong 96 day row single handedly across the Atlantic last winter.

It is difficult for people to appreciate the sheer amount of effort put in my people like Kathy, Katie, Chris, Karen and all our volunteers like Daryl who give up time to support WRAS. Its difficult to express the difficult emotional roller coaster, tiredness, exhaustion, frustration pushed through by determination and commitment that our staff/volunteers deal with. So in my eyes you are all heroes. Congratulations.

Thank you to BBC Sussex & Surrey for putting on a remarkable evening completely free of charge for everyone to enjoy.

Trevor Weeks MBE
