Do you know a senior citizen who deserves a Pride of South Holland Award?

There’s still plenty of time left to nominate someone for the Pride of South Holland Awards 2016. The Senior Citizen Award identifies and celebrates the hard work done in our community. This could be someone who continues to work hard within an organisation, or maybe a person who takes time out of their busy schedule and provides care for someone. Nominees must be aged 60 or over.

Last year’s winner Maureen Scantlebury was nominated because she has worked as a volunteer for Age Concern, supporting the elderly with tasks such as shopping, and chatting to people who need help. Maureen has been a volunteer for Peterborough Youth Offending Service, providing support and guidance to young offenders for ten years. She has also trained as a bereavement counsellor, and has helped numerous local people manage their grief. She facilitates a weekly group at St Barnabas in Spalding.

Sponsoring the Senior Citizen Awards this year is Calthrops Solicitors who are celebrating 155 years in practice in the heart of the town centre in Spalding and in Holbeach.
