A glittering prize has been won by organiser, fundraiser and all-round irrepressible abob supporter, Eastbourne dweller, Paul Apps. Out of hundreds of entrants, Paul has won the BBC Sussex and Surrey Community Heroes Award for Volunteering.
On Dec 10th, Paul and his wife Alison attended the celebration dinner. At the start, Paul knew he’d been shortlisted but nothing more. “When they said the winner is Paul Apps, I could not believe it,” he says with characteristic modesty. “I’d like to say this award is for all the mentors and mentees in abob who are constantly in service with no awards. This award honours the abob community.”
