Chris Miller of The Lynch in Whitchurch was the overall winner in the 2012 Basingstoke & Deane Rotary Club Service Above Self Awards. The award ceremony took place at the Apollo Hotel, Basingstoke, last night.
Chris was nominated in the category ‘using a talent to benefit others’ in respect of his cycling challenge called ‘Ben Nevis and Back’ raising funds for the Whitchurch Youth Centre Trust. In each category there were 3 finalists; Chris won his category and then went on to be the overall winner for 2012.
The award was presented by the Lord Lieutenant of Hampshire, Dame Mary Fagan, and was collected on behalf of Chris by his sister Lianne. Chris is presently in Belize volunteering with Blue Ventures on one of their marine conservation projects.
