In 2017 we created a new award to honour our late chairman, Mike Pollock. We wanted to do something special in Mike's name and so now, each year, the award will go to a CH hero in the UK - someone who has shown outstanding and compassionate support to cluster headache sufferers.
There was never any limit to the help Mike offered to sufferers; he always went the extra mile, never ceasing to have the well-being of sufferers in mind - so we thought he would approve of the nature of this award.
The first recipient of the new award was Darren Hamilton, who is well known in the CH community for his commitment to helping other sufferers. A very worthy choice.
Once again, we want to hear your stories about your own CH hero - anyone who has gone that extra mile to help either yourself personally, or cluster headache sufferers in general. We look forward to receiving your stories.
The winner will be chosen by our membership from nominations submitted by the cluster headache community in the UK.
Submissions must be in by 6.00pm on Saturday, 22nd September. The winner will be presented with the award at our autumn conference.
Voting for OUCH trustees/officers or a previous winner is not permitted.
Closing date for nominations:
6pm Saturday, 22nd September, 2018.
Please send your nomination to firstname.lastname@example.org
