ED­WINA KINCH from Leigh on Sea has won the Gold Cit­i­zen of Southend Award 2015 at a pri­vate cer­e­mony at Porters Civic House in Southend. Ed­wina, a lo­cal fundraiser, was nom­i­nated by Anun­cia­cion So­mav­illa from Thorpe Bay. Anun­cia­cion said: ‘Ed­wina has worked re­lent­lessly, rais­ing money through events for Havens Hospice and she is cur­rently sit­ting on the com­mit­tee for SOS Rape Cri­sis and SOS Do­mes­tic Vi­o­lence. She or­gan­ises char­ity din­ners, fash­ion shows and a large range of ac­tiv­i­ties to raise vi­tal funds. I feel she is the per­fect per­son to be awarded this prize.’

The com­mit­tee at Cit­i­zen of Southend Award were most im­pressed with her tire­less com­mit­ment to her fundrais­ing and com­mit­ment to her com­mu­nity.
