Joe Hawkins – MTM Awards events coordinator

“The love of supporting the MTM Awards for me is that, in this world there is too much intolerance, ignorance, division and hate.
I hope that being an ambassador gives me the opportunity to talk to people and show them that with unity and love we can make this world a better place for all, no matter what religion you practice, the country your born in, your gender or the colour of your skin, we are all the same, we all want to be happy, safe and our children to grow in a world without judgement just because of who we are.
From the platform of MTM Awards, I love that we can show the people of the South West, our country  and  the rest of the world that they are truly appreciated and valued for what they do.
Whether that be from the local shop to years of dedication to charities or our public services.
My wife, Emma and I have been part of this beautiful cultural experience since 2014 and look forward to many more years ahead.
I would like to thank every nominee, winner and sponsors of the MTM Awards for helping me and the team to try and make our home a happy, safe, fun and tolerant place to live,” – Joe Hawkins
