The Spirit FM Local Hero Awards are an annual event held to honour local people for various achievements in all walks of life. Back in 2012, Garry was lucky enough to receive one of these for his charity cycle ride around the world.
Unfortunately, Garry was unable to collect the award himself as he was still cycling in China. On the final leg of his world tour. The award ceremony was held the month before he returned to England. So it was up to Garry’s daughter, Vicky, to receive the award on his behalf.
The Managing director of Spirit FM, Sally Austin, did, however, come to the welcome home party and present Garry with his award.
