I have some exciting news – I’ve been nominated for a national diversity award!


Over a month a go now an unexpected email popped into my mailbox telling me that I had been nominated for Positive Roll Model at The National Diversity Awards (in the Disability section) and to be honest I am still a little in shock. The awards ceremony, held later this year, celebrates the inspiring achievements of positive role models and community organisations from across the UK. The awards aim to recognise nominees in their respective fields of diversity including age, disability, gender, race, faith, religion and sexual orientation.
DSC_0260I can honestly say that reading the comments from those who have voted so far has been the most humbling experience. Some have brought me to tears. All of the comments are anonymous, so I can’t thank everyone individually but thank you so much to those who have already voted.  I know that me and my little blog are very unlikely to get shortlisted for such a huge award, let alone win, but that really doesn’t matter, as being nominated and the lovely words those have written means the absolute world and have given me such a boost. Once the voting closes, I plan to save the comments on my computer and on those really tough, painful days I will read them and they’ll make me smile :)

If you would like to vote for me, you can do so here.
