BBC Sussex Community Heroes Award goes to Lewes actress

Lewes actress Sarah Gordy was a winner in the BBC Sussex Community Heroes Awards which recognise remarkable people and their achievements.

She took the award for an Outstanding Contribution to the Arts. Sarah has played a major part in her field over the years by being an ambassador for people with disabilities; her contribution is impressive primarily because Sarah has Down’s syndrome.

She is the Disability Liaison Officer for her local branch of Equity and is passionate about disabled people becoming more visible in all the arts.
