Pete Trigg Wins!

Congratulations to Pete Trigg who has been recognised as Volunteer of the year at the Hereford Times Heath & Social Care Awards 2022

This award was sponsored by Cambian

Pete Trigg has been a member of Hereford Hospital Radio for over 10 years. Pete is a natural broadcaster and his warmth and local knowledge  really inspires many to look up to him at Hospital Radio. 

Pete for a number of years has acted as mentor to many of our new members who have gone on to develop their own careers, and his ability to make radio easy is something of an art. 

Being patient, and generous with his time, both at the studio, and on the wards, Pete make a presenter feel at ease. 

'Pete and his wife have given up huge amounts of time over many years to support HHR, the patients and the community ' wrote the person who nominated him. " In early years the presenters would go around the wards before their shows and collects requests. At weekend they would help with fund raising."

Pete returns to air in March 2023
