Last year, the Board of Trustees chose Corin Ridout to receive this award. Corin regularly raised awareness and funds on behalf of his brother Glen, a cluster headache sufferer. Sadly, Glen passed away not long before Corin's virtual London Marathon but he was determined to carry on in Glen's memory. We felt that this was a wonderful example of going the extra mile that we've always associated with the Mike Pollock award and that he was a very deserving recipient.
The award was created in honour of our late, much missed chairman, Mike, who helped so very many cluster headache sufferers. It is meant to go to a CH hero in the UK - someone who has shown outstanding and compassionate support to cluster headache sufferers.
The winner will be chosen from nominations submitted by the cluster headache community in the UK. 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 nominations soon so that a poll can be set up for our 2021 winner.
Send your nominations to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Nominations must be submitted by 6.00pm on Friday 7th January, 2022 then we can brighten up January with the voting
Please note: Nominating OUCH trustees/officers or a previous winner is not permitted.
