WOW! Awards is a not for profit organisation. It is the only national awards scheme for customer service based purely on customer nominations – their chosen charity at this year’s 2009 WOW! Awards Ceremony held in London on Wednesday 4th November 2009 was The Muscle Help Foundation, a small UK-based charity that delivers Muscle Dreams™, designed to give amazing and unforgettable personalised life experiences in the UK to children and young people afflicted by Muscular Dystrophy.
Co-founder and inspirational speaker Michael McGrath delivered the keynote address to some 400 invited guests from across the UK where nearly £1600 was raised on the night for the charity’s Muscle Dreams™ programme.
One of the WOW Awards licensees EverMedia Ltd generously sponsored a quantity of Michael McGrath’s recently launched film titled ‘Powerful Beyond Measure’ produced by Well Drawn Productions and narrated by Actor, Film Director and one of the charity’s Patrons, Kenneth Branagh. The film together with a special editorial feature about the charity and a personal note of thanks was sent after the event to all guests. The film gives a brief insight into Michael’s life and his work.
Pictured above is Michael McGrath congratulating Amir Azizpour, the Customer Services Manager of EverMedia Ltd who commented, “Michael is an inspiration to anyone faced with the seemingly impossible. We are urging all of our customers and suppliers to remember that it takes 10 muscles to smile, 12 to frown but only 1 to make a difference.”
He added, “Michael is a true inspiration to us all. We can all help his charity continue to make that difference by getting involved, perhaps becoming a Muscle Warrior™ or by simply making a donation.”
The WOW! Awards paid tribute to the very best customer service providers in the UK. All of the finalists were nominated by customers for these prestigious awards. An independent panel of expert judges decided the winners. Awards Ceremony Sponsors included: Ladbrokes, Vertigo 42, Tower 42, Rhodes 24, Connexions and Kall Kwik.
