The winners of the Richard Flint awards were announced by The British Polio Fellowship on Saturday 16 September.
The British Polio Fellowship revealed the winners of the Richard Flint awards during its Annual General Meeting on 16 September, at the Mercure York Fairfield Manor Hotel in York.
"The Richard Flint awards are a highlight of the British Polio Fellowship calendar and came about because of a very generous donation” explained Kripen Dhrona, Chief Executive of The British Polio Fellowship.
