Inclusivity and diversity are important values that should be embraced by all members of society. Unfortunately, individuals with disabilities often face barriers to full participation in their communities. That's why it's so inspiring to hear about individuals like Joshua Clowes, one of our volunteer radio presenters who has cerebral palsy and hosts his own show on Leek Radio.

Joshua's show, "Josh's Midweek Jukebox," airs on Wednesday evenings between 7 pm and 8 pm.

The show features Joshua's love of music, and he often includes interactive elements like a "Guess the Year" quiz to encourage listener engagement. But what makes Joshua's story truly remarkable is the fact that he is able to pursue his passion for radio despite his disability.

Cerebral palsy is a neurological disorder that affects movement and coordination. It can make everyday tasks difficult, but Joshua has found a way to overcome these challenges and pursue his dream of hosting his own radio show. His dedication and determination are truly inspiring, and it's heartening to know that he is supported by his friend, colleague, and fellow volunteer presenter, Jase.

It's important to recognize the value that individuals with disabilities bring to our communities. When we create inclusive spaces that allow everyone to participate fully, we all benefit. By embracing inclusivity, we can help to break down barriers and challenge stereotypes around disabilities.
