We were “holding out for a hero” and we got plenty of them on Monday 25th June, at the Ely Hero Awards Ceremony 2018, held at The Maltings, Ely Riverside! Once again Metro Rod Cambridge, local Drain Care and Repair company had the honour of organising this event.
It was an epic night to remember for everyone in Ely and the District, as we welcomed 155 guests, including Ely business sponsors, our category finalists along with their friends and family, and civic guests. We were treated to entertainment by local band, Elma, and vocalist Kathryn Buck. The event was officially opened by the Mayor of Ely, Cllr Mike Rouse and hosted by BBC Radio Cambridgeshire’s, Chris Mann. We were delighted and honoured to have Her Majesty’s Representative of Cambridgeshire, Lord Lieutenant Mrs Julie Spence, as our very special guest, whose support and enthusiasm for this is fantastic!
Mr Mann introduced all our fabulous finalists in the 10 categories, all of which were sponsored by the most generous of businesses in Ely and the District:
Metro Rod (Cambridge)
Grovermere Property Limited
Crown Garage Honda
Ely Gin Company
Kings School Ely
and Media Partner, The Ely Standard
Other local businesses sponsored the ceremony itself;
Milton Executive Cars
Some highlights of the evening was the “Child of Achievement” Category, Sponsored by Crown Garage Honda in Soham. The stories about these amazing children in the community touched all our hearts – there wasn’t a dry eye in the house as they took to the stage to collect their awards and receive the most electric standing ovation from the audience! The judging panel wished to reward each child as a winner, which was so rightly deserved. A lot of proud Mums and Dads! THE Ely Hero crown was given to Ruth Marley who runs the Re-Imagination Unit in Witchford – her committal to re-cycling and sourcing products that would be thrown away by large companies is truly inspiring. Ruth donates these products to charity and provides educational resources to the community. The work she does and the effect in our community is incredible! Congratulations Ruth!
With 30 local businesses getting involved in what has been described as “the event of the year”, the support has been overwhelming. It has provided such a surge of excitement through our city that is a joy to behold! Everyone makes a difference and these awards recognise this.
All elements of promotional materials were designed and produced by Infiniti Graphics and Sadie Finch, local Virtual Assistant provided admin support. Both assisted with the organisation of the event.
