Two Jerusalem Awards for GRF


We’re very happy to report that our two shortlisted programmes both won awards at last night’s Jerusalem Awards held at BAFTA in London.

The programmes were very different  – one a personal reflection for Fathers’ Day; the other, a satirical television sketch for Christmas – but the judges were fulsome in their praise for both. The Fathers’ Day piece was ‘very moving’ and involving; the sketch was ‘clever and creative, with a smart Christian message’.

GRF Team members, Brian Muir and Gillian McKinnon, were at the award ceremony to accept the awards on behalf of GRF.

Members of the GRF team were presented with a special award at the 2010 Jerusalem Radio Awards ceremony in London on 21 October. The award was for ‘outstanding contribution to religious broadcasting’. This special recognition, which was last given four years ago (to Rev Roger Royle), is made at the behest of the Trustees of the award charity.  The whole GRF team is delighted at getting this award – it provides a great encouragement for our work.
