North Halifax Star 2017: Outstanding Individual Award – WINNER ANNOUNCED!

WINNER: Amanda Rhodes

Amanda Rhodes is an individual who goes above and beyond for her local community. She has been volunteering at Illingworth Moor Methodist Church for a few years where she cooked the Friday lunches.

She has organised 3 fundraising events for Overgate Hospice, Yorkshire Children’s Trust and with just 10 days’ notice she organised a fundraising event for a young lady who has had cancer whose family are raising money so she can get married.

Amanda also gave her Boxing Day up to do a Community Christmas Lunch for those who would otherwise be on their own. She organised transport, a group of volunteers to help and she contacted various businesses to donate items so everyone could go home with Christmas Presents.

Amanda is also involved with the Community Event which is set to be held at Illingworth Moor in June along with the events committee (Jo Cox Community Day).

She is always willing to give up her own time to help others wherever and whenever she can.
