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.
