THE OLIVER BROWN AWARD

Ollie Brown was a member of BHBN for a number of years until 2016 when he left to return home to Swindon to look after his mother with his fiancée Liz.
Tragically Ollie died in August 2018 after suffering a brain haemorrhage
.

Ollie loved volunteering for BHBN and once trained he enjoyed training new members therefore it was only appropriate to name an award for Best Trainees in his memory.

The pandemic delayed the presentation of the 2020 award which was won by Kira Hughes.  Kira applied in response to our request for a presenter for Children’s wards and did her training along with her one hundred hours university work experience which she did over a short period attending the studios every day learning all aspects of the studio equipment and computerised playout system. Going forward she took on two programmes each week

The 2021 award was presented to Lily Grace James. Without previous experience Lily Grace presented her first solo show navigating the complexities of the Morning Show after just three weeks of training that was modified due to Covid restrictions.  Lily Grace then went on to sit in on other programmes to cover holidays and sickness.

Congratulations to them both!
