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 world cycle ride.
Unfortunately Garry was unable to collect the award himself as he was still cycling in China and 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, here is the video from that night.
The Managing director of Spirit FM Sally Austin did however come to the welcome home party and present Garry with his award.
