Friends of Meols Park Wirrals Champion Team of the Year 2009

by Jane Clare, Birkenhead News

OUR very own Wirral community champions joined others from across the North west last Friday when they were toasted as heroes. For the first time the Wirral News was represented in the Scottish Power/Trinity Mirror Your Champions Awards. Community champions gathered for the red carpet treatment at The Crowne Plaza Hotel in Chester as glowing tributes were paid to those unsung and selfless community stalwarts who have given so much to our region.Young and old heroes from towns, villages, schools and community organisations mingled with local celebrities, MPs, civic dignitories and representatives from Scottish Power and our sister publisher, Trinity Mirror Cheshire.
Carl Wood Trinity Mirror Cheshire publishing director reminded guests that a champion, by definition is “An ardent defender or supporter of a cause or another person.”He added: “We are very proud to be associated with and support this fantastic initiative. It would not be possible without the champions and tonight we are celebrating the achievements of some very special people.

Scottish Power have been proud co-sponsors of the award which has paid tribute to some extraordinary and remarkable characters.Raymond Jack managing director of energy retail for Scottish Power explained: “We are genuinely proud to be associated with this event. The event shines on the vast amount of charitable work being done in the area and the people that make a real difference in the community.”Special guests of the evening included ITV presenter Trevor Green who compered and Snooker Champion and Strictly Come Dancing star Willie Thorne.The snooker star said: “The world today is a very strange place which is why I am so honoured to be here. It’s great to be talking about and listening to champions.”
