The iPM New Year Honours Special

Jennifer Tracey | 18:10 UK time, Saturday, 2 January 2010

Huge congratulations to our winner Delma Hughes who was nominated by Janet Rich, she wrote:

"Delma is a fifty-year-old mum of two who was brought up in care in Wales in the seventies. Like for many children in care at that time, life was often harsh and there was no rights for children to know who they were or what their family circumstances were.

Delma was one of seven siblings but knew nothing about them until later in her life when she tracked all of them down....Delma has campaigned to end the way that sibling groups are split up in care and often never have any further contact with each other.

She has created the charity Siblings Together and has run summer sibling camps to enable a small number of children, separated across the country, to have high quality and fun time together."

Listen to Delma talking on the programme

So, um, Delma was out when we called....but hopefully she'll want to talk to us in the new year, if Eddie's message hasn't put her off.
