Lat­est round up of de­serv­ing nom­i­nees

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - FRONT PAGE -

A YOUTH worker has been com­mended for her ef­forts by re­ceiv­ing a Pride of Bucks nom­i­na­tion.

Sally Al­ford, a trustee of Shed@ThePark, a youth char­ity based in Che­sham, has been put for­ward for the Com­mu­nity Cham­pion prize.

The award is de­signed to recog­nise peo­ple who have gone above and be­yond in their work in the com­mu­nity.

Ge­orge Jef­frey, who nom­i­nated Sally for the prize, be­lieves she fits the bill.

He said: “Sally (known as Sal) has been a tire­less con­trib­u­tor to both Shed@ThePark and the lo­cal Che­sham and Amer­sham com­mu­ni­ties for more than 10 years. As a Trustee of Shed for 10 years, she has given her heart and soul to this wor­thy char­ity, tak­ing on a va­ri­ety of dif­fer­ent roles, im­mers­ing her­self into the lo­cal com­mu­nity, at­tend­ing count­less meet­ings and man­ning count- less num­bers of stalls, all to the ben­e­fit of both Shed and the com­mu­nity.

“She was a vol­un­teer at the 2012 Par Olympic Games, has en­gaged in nu­mer­ous other lo­cal non-profit ini­tia­tives and has con­stantly and self­lessly given of her time for a wider cause. I can think of no other bet­ter re­cip­i­ent of a Com­mu­nity Cham­pion award.”
