The Lesley McKay Stronger Communities Award 2018

Congratulations!

The Lesley McKay Stronger Communities Award 2018

 

The Onside Lesley McKay Stronger Communities Award has been set up to recognise someone who has made an outstanding contribution to sustainable change in their community.  Our thanks go to everyone who submitted a nomination. 

We have received some outstanding entries for the 2018 award with some inspirational stories and evidence of people making a real difference.  Whilst not everyone can take away an award, we truly feel that everyone nominated was a winner.  The nominations were hugely impressive and the judging extremely close. 

We are delighted to announce that this year’s award will go to Will Pember, a volunteer with Rooftop Housing Group’s Health and Wellbeing Service.  Will has been the driving force behind a walking football scheme for Rooftop residents and the local community.  For those involved friendships have been forged, social isolation reduced and fitness improved.  It’s been a great success and, with growing numbers of participants, the scheme has expanded to operate in both Evesham and Pershore.

Our congratulations go to Will.  The award will be presented at the Onside 25th Anniversary Celebration & AGM on 12th September.

Congratulations! 

The Lesley McKay Stronger Communities Award 2017

The Onside Lesley McKay Stronger Communities Ward has been set up to recognise someone who has made an outstanding contribution to sustainable change in their community.  Our thanks go to everyone who submitted a nomination.  We have received some outstanding entries for the 2017 award with some inspirational stories and evidence of people making a real difference.

Whilst not everyone can take away an award, we truly feel that everyone nominated was a winner.  The nominations were hugely impressive and the judging extremely close.  So close in fact that, this year, we are making a joint award and are delighted to announce the winners as Dot Burnett at St Paul’s Church and Gerry Lowman at St Paul’s Hostel.

Dot established CityCare at St Paul’s Church which provides the community with a diverse range of projects including activities for babies & toddlers, primary school children and over 55s as well as English classes, bereavement support and a café

Gerry set up The Creative Group at St Paul’s Hostel with a variety of activities.  The aim is to encourage engagement in community projects, rekindle ambition and rebuild self-confidence for people who have complex lives

Our congratulations go to Dot and Gerry.  Their awards will be presented at the Onside Ideas Exchange & AGM on 13th September.
