The Contribution to the Community Award sponsored by Cheltenham Borough Homes recognises a group/person that has made a difference in the local area.

Cheltenham Borough Homes

Winner: Vanessa Worrall

Vanessa, as the Manager of Together in Matson (TiM) has for over 20 years continually made a "difference" to the lives of the (both Young and Old) of the Matson Gloucester community. The "difference" has been in many forms helping the with Mental and General well-being Health of many, with an "Arm around the shoulder", by providing support for housing problems, arranging many events to support both individuals and TiM e.g: following the death of a young child enabling the parents to afford a "headstone" for the child's grave. Every Christmas Vanessa will develop events as a celebration both at the Redwell Centre and/or throughout the streets of Matson with Santa visiting many families. Vanessa will give up her own time to give support at whatever time day or night.

Finalist: Roger Bellairs

I would like to nominate Roger for his tireless contribution to the needs of isolated lonely and vulnerable people in Tetbury. He not only provides his service as a volunteer driver. But he brings the community together to co-ordinate and implement transport needs for the vulnerable across Tetbury ensuring that people can get where they need to be or want to be, no matter their location, physical or mental issues or due to poverty. Users of the Tetbury service say they don't know where they would be without Roger.
