This time last year Lewis was trudging across the Antarctic continent, surrounded by nothing but snow and ice, nearly two weeks into his seven week epic expedition. A year later and his environment couldn’t be more different – all dressed up, tucking into a lovely Christmas lunch and honoured to receive the Bristol Post Gold Star achiever award 2014.
At a fun awards ceremony at the Marriott Hotel in Bristol Lewis was presented with his prize by Casualty and Strictly Come Dancing star Sunetra and a representative from sponsors Computerworld Personnel (huge thanks to them as there would be no awards without sponsors).
The Bristol Post is a great local paper and has supported Lewis since he was 12 and part of the English Channel swim team. They take a special interest in Bristol’s adventure community and we thank them for it. The awards celebrated eleven amazing people, from age 11 to 92, who come from the local area and have shown extraordinary courage or compassion in 2014, to check out the other Gold Star winners go to http://www.bristolpost.com
