Radio Northwick Park – Volunteers Rewadred and Recognised

Two volunteers at a Radio Northwick Park have been recognised for their sheer determination and won the charity £700.

Volunteers Chris Hartmann and Steve Pinchen won the Jack Petchey awards last week.

The Jack Petchey Foundation rewards programmes and projects that benefit young people.

Radio Northwick Park, which broadcasts to the patients of Northwick Park Hospital, has over 120 volunteers who visit patients and broadcast live shows throughout the day.

Chris won an award for outstanding achievement, while Steve won the Leader’s award.

Volunteers Coordinator Jade Wight described both volunteers as “enthusiastic, dedicated and knowledgeable”.

She said: “Steve is always trying to find new ways in which he can train and motivate his volunteers to become the best that they can be. Chris is always looking for his own ways to raise money for the charity while setting challenges for himself. He recently took part in an organised run and later this year he will be taking on Mount Snowden with a team of other RNP volunteers. He is everything we look for in a volunteer and more.”
