PROVIDING a voice for the sometimes voiceless has been an invaluable asset for one Springfield community.   Choice, Passion, Life (CPL - formerly Cerebral Palsy League) Springfield produces Australia's only radio program run exclusively by people with a disability through USQ Springfield's radio broadcaster, Phoenix Radio.   The InvincAbility radio team were formerly recognised for its contribution to the community earlier this week as part of the radio station's 10-year birthday celebrations.   CPL Springfield manager Martyn Kneale said he was proud of what the team had achieved.   "Being able to give people the opportunity to express themselves in various ways has been very rewarding," Mr Kneale said.   "This award is a great acknowledgement of what we do and great publicity for the program."   CPL team member Coral Andrews joined the InvincAbility team shortly after it began and said she loved being a part of the show.   Ms Andrews said the program was important because people with a disabilty can face exclusion from society.   Current and former students and staff and community members attended the event at USQ Springfield on Tuesday.   To Listen to Phoenix Radio via the TuneIn Radio app by searching Phoenix Radio Online.
