Making a Difference. PRIDE of BRITAIN DAILY Mirror Awards 2007 TESCO TESCO CHIEF TERRY LEAHY PRAISES 'BEACONS OF HOPE'


AS each year passes, a growing number of inspirational people receive the recognition they richly deserve thanks to the Daily Mirror's Pride of Britain Awards.

I feel humbled by their achievements and Tesco is honoured to sponsor the awards for a second year. The winners' stories never fail to move and I believe they prove that individuals can and do make a difference.

The communities we live in simply would not be the same without them.

Neighbourhoods across the country have faced trying times this year. The floods which hit parts of Britain and the relief effort that followed reminded me of what can be achieved when individuals pull together.

From the outstanding efforts of the emergency services to neighbours helping one another out, it is clear the difference individuals can make.

That's what makes these awards so special - and so important.

Which is why we are also proud to sponsor the Tesco Neighbour of the Year Award and would like to congratulate the winner, Anne Glover.

By spearheading the regeneration of her crime-ridden estate, Anne has dramatically changed her neighbourhood making it a safe place to live.

People like Anne make a stand when others won't. I greatly admire her resilience and determination.

All the winners stand out as beacons of hope and deserve our admiration and respect - they are a credit to us all.

On behalf of everyone at Tesco, I congratulate all of tonight's winners and I wish you a fantastic night.

ITV Carer of the Year

MIRIAM BENNETT

HAVING dedicated her life to fostering more than 300 children, Miriam Bennett is a remarkable foster carer - she has even renovated a derelict B&B to accommodate all her children.

She's currently caring for nine kids at her home in Bridlington, Yorks - two of whom have cystic fibrosis and two who have cerebral palsy.

Miriam, 57, who is also a community campaigner, and her husband Vic, 59, moved from their home in Leeds after 20 years to Bridlington, where they could afford somewhere big enough for the children.

"Some of the foster children are emergency cases, some short - term and others are with us for years," says Miriam, who also cared for her parents, who had cancer before they died. "You never know what's going to happen each day. It can be a bit of a madhouse but there's never a dull moment."

'It can be a bit of a madhouse.. but there's never a dull moment!'
