BBC Radio York Flood Hero Awards 2012
We are delighted that Next Steps have been nominated for a BBC Radio York Flood Hero Awards
The awards were launched in September 2012 by Radio York to recognize the part played by individuals and organizations during the floods experienced in York and Ryedale.
Next Steps, with assistance from the local Salvation Army stayed open day and night throughout the severe floods in Malton in October 2012. Being so closely situated to the River Derwent, the Next Steps café was an ideal base for the emergency services to use as whilst they worked tirelessly. Staff and volunteers welcomed the support services, supplied bacon sandwiches and hot drinks.
The awards will be announced in March 2013
