Today we reveal the winners of last night’s Inspire Wales Awards
Inspirational individuals working tirelessly to make Wales a better place were rewarded last night at a glittering ceremony held at Cardiff’s City Hall.
The Inspire Wales Awards, an IWA initiative in partnership with the Western Mail, reward the unsung heroes making a difference in Welsh civic life. They celebrate the achievements of men and women throughout Wales in the fields of business, education, science, arts and media, the environment and sport, as well as seeking champions in corporate social responsibility, citizenship and young achievers. This was the third year of the awards and this year’s achievers demonstrated yet again a remarkable set of contributions that are being made to Welsh civic life.
