Al­ways putting oth­ers needs be­fore hers

PUTTING help­ing oth­ers be­fore her own needs leads to Sharon McEwan be­ing put for­ward for the Com­mu­nity Cham­pion award spon­sored by Nunn Hay­ward

Dress­ing in Vic­to­rian cos­tume isn’t an ev­ery­day event for Sharon McEwan but some­times her role as a Friend of Che­sham Ceme­tery Com­mit­tee sim­ply de­mands it.

This pic­ture was taken last year as Mrs McEwan helped out as a guide for a his­tory event at the ceme­tery. And it is one of the rea­sons she has been nom­i­nated for a Pride of Bucks award.

From help­ing at the Christ­mas Party for the el­derly, to un­der­tak­ing com­mu­nity lit­ter picks and vol­un­teer­ing with the Friends of the ceme­tery, she has spent many years giv­ing her time freely to help the com­mu­nity.

Which is why she has been nom­i­nated for a Com­mu­nity Cham­pion award, a cat­e­gory spon­sored Nunn Hay­ward.

Mrs McEwan still ded­i­cates a lot of time to the ceme­tery com­mit­tee, in­clud­ing un­lock­ing the gates on says such as

by Christ­mas Day, track­ing graves and lo­ca­tions for rel­a­tives and the town hall and keep­ing it clean and tidy.

Nom­i­nat­ing her, Laura McEwan said: “Sharon has al­ways put help­ing oth­ers be­fore help­ing her­self, vol­un­teer­ing her time. De­spite her health not be­ing great, she will still help any­one who asks.”
