Martin Lawrence — The Eve Merton Dreams Trust
Martin Lawrence and Clynton Johnson founded The Eve Merton Dreams Trust in mid-2011, just 6 months after the sad loss of Martins mother Eve to cancer. It aims to raise funds for other serious & terminally ill cancer patients in their local area, to turn the grief from the loss of Eve into a positive for others suffering the same ill affects she did. Martin aims to be able to give families a special moment to remember during a time they need it the most, a trip, a family photo, a special visit or a life-long dream.
Emma Casson — Homegrown Food Festival, Northallerton
As a member of the Homegrown Food Group, Emma is passionate about raising the profile of locally produced food and drink and works in a small team of dedicated volunteers every year to do just this. Her ambition is for communities to become more self-sufficient through the revival of local economies, for people to be inspired to shop locally and to have
a go at growing fruit and vegetables at home. She is a firm believer in the power of individuals and small groups to bring about change within their community.
