An Eastbourne business woman has been crowned the overall UK winner of the Talk Talk Digital Heroes Award.

Helen McCabe took home the trophy and also received £10,000 of funding at a ceremony at the House of Commons on November 5.

Helen won the award for her work on Community Get Better Known, a project that provides training and hands-on experience to young volunteers who struggle with work. Each volunteer learns how to create websites for local voluntary groups and learns how to promote the groups online via several social media platforms.

Helen said, “Words cannot express how much it means to us.”
