Congratulations to the winner of the LG Challenge 2015

in News

Congratulations to Jude Taylor, the winner of the Local Government Challenge 2015. Jude scooped up the £10,000 Bruce-Lockhart Scholarship prize, which will assist with implementation of her project. Her vision is to create a sustainable, community led, physical activity intervention designed to reduce the incidents of vascular dementia.

Hereford and Worcester Fire Rescue Service proudly hosted the final task of this year's challenge, in which we asked the two teams to create an exciting campaign revolving around the recruitment of on-call firefighters. The two teams, Team Aspire and Team Catalyst, were given access to on-call staff, managers, and had a chance to speak to the public to gain their views and ideas for the campaign.

Both teams came up with brilliant ideas that included poster campaigns, social media interaction, and even recruiting people at the gym. After putting together their presentations, each team presented their recruitment campaign to the judging panel. The teams were judged on their creativity and ability to come up with innovative ideas, and after a tense wait, the winner was revealed.
