DESPITE missing out on a national award Robert Harriman still felt like a winner at the Pride of Britain Awards on Tuesday night.
Mr Harriman, who won the regional award for his work as a neighbourhood warden, was named on a shortlist of 10 from more than 5,000 entrants and rubbed shoulders with celebrities for the annual awards show, shown on ITV1.
He said: “I didn’t win but I felt like I did just for getting there, it was so amazing. I met the Prime Minister, David Cameron, and he told me it was amazing the amount of work I do in Milton Keynes.”
As well as meeting Mr Cameron, Rob also met popstar Olly Murs, X Factor judge Tulisa Contostavlos and a host of other celebrities after he and his sister, Debbie Webb, were invited to an exclusive private party.
He has been working as a neighbourhood warden across the city for nine years and in that time has featured heavily in the Pride of Milton Keynes Awards, in a number of categories, including Service with a Smile and Making MK Safer where he has either won or been Highly Commended every year.
