The winner of the Douglas King Award for written journalism is Gayle Ripper. She submitted a compelling story about how caravanning changed the lives of herself, her husband, and her three children after he contracted cancer and very nearly died. Buying a caravan for the first time helped his recovery and led the family to do all sorts of things they would never have done otherwise. You can read the story here.
The award was presented by Guild Chairman, Andrew Ditton (below left ) and Nigel Coppen from Vantage Insurance (below right).
