Kidderminster diabetes champion nominated for 'hero' award
A KIDDERMINSTER diabetes charity champion will appear on TV as one of four finalists for a Midlands local hero award.
Fred Holland, 77, chairman of Diabetes UK’s Wyre Forest branch, has been nominated for ITV’s Pride of Britain Awards: Midlands local hero of the year 2013 because of his fundraising efforts and support for the charity.
He has raised more than £140,000 since becoming chairman of the charity’s Kidderminster and Wyre Forest voluntary group in 1961.
A film about each of the four finalists will be shown on ITV Central’s 6pm news programmes each night from tomorrow until Thursday with the winner, who will appear at the national awards ceremony later in the year, being announced on the show on Friday.
