Essex Arts Award for James and Chris

16th April 2011
Posted by Gateway 97.8

James Fuente aged 12 and Chris carter 23 both have something in common – they volunteer at Gateway 97.8, Basildon and East Thurrock’s community radio station based in the Eastgate Shopping Centre.

James goes to the Basildon Lower Academy and despite health issues gives his all to the radio station. Chris was on a placement via The Princes Trust and has since joined the station as a volunteer.

Chris has already been awarded his certificate at the Princes Trust event in Basildon this week, and James received his certificate from Ian Clark, general manager of Eastgate on Friday 15th April.
