Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - PRIDE OF BUCKS 2015 - By Camilla Good­man camilla.good­man@trin­i­tymir­ror.com

THE third an­nual Pride of Bucks awards is go­ing to be ‘big­ger and bet­ter,’ one of the event’s hosts has pre­dicted.

The Ex­am­iner/ Advertiser’s Pride of Bucks 2015 will take place at Stoke Park in Stoke Poges on Mon­day, June 29.

Re­turn­ing as hosts for their third year are The Breeze ra­dio pre­sen­ter Robert Kenny and ITV Merid­ian’s Louise Lewis.

They will work along­side this year’s pre­sen­ter Suzanne Shaw.

Mr Kenny is ex­cited to host the awards once again.

He said: “This is go­ing to be our third time, it’s been re­ally good.

“When we did the first year, ev­ery­one said it’s amaz­ing that there’s so many peo­ple in this area do­ing amaz­ing, brave and in­spi­ra­tional things.

“It was nice to give them a day to recog­nise what they achieved.

“It was a great event and lots of peo­ple were recog­nised, how­ever then it was a bit like is there enough to do it again, and we did the sec­ond year and the an­swer was yes, and from what I’ve heard it’s get­ting big­ger and bet­ter.”

He added: “It’s al­ways a good event.

“There are lots of nice sto­ries and they’re all in­spir­ing but some can be quite emo­tional too.

“Louise and I will read through the script be­fore the event but it’s not un­til you hear the sto­ries and have the peo­ple around you that it hits you about how fan­tas­tic they’ve been, it can be quite emo­tional.”

Mr Kenny thinks ev­ery­one who at­tends the event will have a good day.

He said: “I think the whole ex­pe­ri­ence of com­ing along to a fan­tas­tic set­ting and hav­ing a re­ally nice day out is great.

“Many peo­ple don’t know what to ex­pect when they turn up but they en­joy the whole show and if they win, even bet­ter!”

Re­mem­ber any­one can buy tick­ets to the event where guests will en­joy a cham­pagne re­cep­tion, three-course lunch and en­ter­tain­ment.

Tick­ets cost £55 per head (ta­ble of 10, £500) and guests are seated at ta­bles of 10. To pur­chase tick­ets, please call Lynne Baker on 01895 451008 or email lynne.baker@trin­i­tymir­ror.com.
