FOUR ‘lo­cal he­roes’ have been awarded cer­tifi­cates for their long ser­vice to Home-Start Hilling­don.

The or­gan­i­sa­tion’s team of vol­un­teers are peo­ple with par­ent­ing ex­pe­ri­ence who visit young and of­ten vul­ner­a­ble fam­i­lies to pro­vide ad­vice and prac­ti­cal sup­port.

As part of vol­un­teers week in June, mem­bers were awarded cer­tifi­cates by Hilling­don Mayor, Ge­orge Cooper.

Home-Start Hilling­don co-or­di­na­tor Donna Bow­man, said: “Vol­un­teers are the very heart of our or­gan­i­sa­tion and we would not ex­ist with­out them. They are the lo­cal he­roes that help us pro­vide a vi­tal ser­vice in the com­mu­nity.”

Cur­rently there is a team of 35 vol­un­teers, and last year 94 lo­cal fam­i­lies were sup­ported.
