WINNER: Denise Keenan (St Augustine’s)
Our deserving winner has given outstanding voluntary service to the communities in Park and Warley wards for many years. “She is the very backbone of St Augustine’s Community Centre.”
Denise has been involved in voluntary work for over 30 years providing much needed support to the multi-cultural communities in the Park Ward area.
She has been the backbone to the success of the St Augustine’s centre on Hanson Lane, which has thrived on a shoestring budget but still provides help, advice and support to the vulnerable.
Providing the basic needs and hope to to those at risk with the help from Denise, St Augustine’s has helped to build their confidence, encouraging participation in the wider community and preventing isolation.
Denise has a lot of time for everybody and never fails to go out of her way to offer support to those who need it.
