Rachel Peters, Community Development Officer for Sovereign Housing Association, works closely with community groups in the Lambourn Valley and across Berkshire. She said: “The Unsung Hero of the Lambourn Valley brings people together to identify and recognise others who go that extra mile and help their community be the best it can be. At Sovereign, our communities work is all about finding those unsung heroes, recognising their gifts and skills and connecting them with others to create strong, connected communities. It is great that our visions fit so well together and we fully support 4 Legs Radio in championing these awards.”
