Red Kite Radio Struck Gold & Silver during the awards ceremony for the Community Radio Awards, held online on Saturday evening, 12th December.

Kate Walker won Silver in the Newcomer category fighting off entrants from across the UK. After hearing the news, Kate was ecstatic saying "This is an amazing thing to happen. I feel so honoured to be chosen by my peers for this award."

Station Manager, Steve Fox picked up Gold for Volunteer of the Year, an award which showcases drive and passion as well as being able to make things happen.

Fox said, after the awards, "People in Haddenham who know me will understand that I am rarely at a loss for words, but this has floored me. It is a testament to the great team of volunteers that we have who have battled under extreme pressures this year to ensure that Red Kite Radio has stayed on the air."

"In these awards we were battling against radio stations much bigger than ourselves with, in some cases, thirty or forty years' experience. For us to gain two major awards after only two years in the competition is absolutely fantastic"

He went on, "I am particularly happy for Kate who has worked tirelessly throughout the year, building our website, presenting shows and coordinating our team of newsreaders."
