Craig Phillips hosts the Pride of the Isle Awards

The Vulcan Suite in Doncaster recently hosted the annual glittering award ceremony, The Pride of the Isle Awards, on Saturday 28th January.
Craig was the host of the evening and brought his trademark charm and humour to the event, which put the spotlight on winners across nine categories including ‘male’, ‘female’ and ‘child’ awards, with ‘Most Inspirational’ being the blue-ribbon award of the night.
As well as Craig, the guest list also included the patron of the cause, Sheridan Smith OBE, who is famous for her TV roles including The Royle Family, Gavin & Stacey and numerous West End performances.
The evening was filled with emotion, particularly as the winner of the ‘Most Inspirational Child’ award, Ebony Smith, had sadly passed away shortly before the ceremony after a hard fight with neuroblastoma, a type of cancer which affects the nervous system.
Over the course of the evening Craig helped raise over £22,000 from the 700-strong crowd, all of which will be donated to worthy organisations across the UK.
The night was a tremendous success and is a glowing testament to the organisers of the event, Leesa Sharpe and Maxine Strong.
