Pam picks up her special ham­per

Hinckley Times - - NEWS -

A HINCK­LEY woman who faith­fully cares for her hus­band while man­ag­ing her own health prob­lems was given a fes­tive ham­per.

Pam Glas­gow, 73, was de­lighted with her box of good­ies, awarded to her as part of the Pam­per with a Ham­per cam­paign run by The Hinck­ley Times, Co-Op­er­a­tive So­ci­ety and TNT UK.

She looks af­ter her hus­band Stu­art, who suf­fers from chronic tired­ness and of­ten strug­gles to re­mem­ber things, ow­ing to a head in­jury from three years ago.

The cou­ple re­cently moved to a bun­ga­low in Hinck­ley, down­scal­ing from their home of over 30 years, to help them bet­ter cope with Stu­art’s ail­ments.

Pam was nom­i­nated for her ef­forts by a friend from St Peter’s Catholic Church in Hinck­ley, which she reg­u­larly at­tends.

Pam said: “She asked for my home phone num­ber re­cently and I thought it was odd be­cause it had changed.

“When I told her I’d won the ham­per, she looked at me amazed.

“This is a won­der­ful sur­prise and we will def­i­nitely en­joy the food and drink.”

The cou­ple have been mar­ried for more than 50 years and have been in­volved with run­ning The Sun­shine Club over many years, a group for peo­ple with learn­ing dif­fi­cul­ties based at St Peter’s.

Pam said: “I still try and get him to the club when­ever I can; they ab­so­lutely love him.

“He can’t walk very far, so park­ing can be chal­leng­ing when we’re out, although we do have a blue badge.”

Stu­art also sings in the tra­di­tional choir at St Mary’s Church and with an­other mu­sic group that meets at The Grey­hound in the week.

Pam worked for a num­ber of years for so­cial ser­vices in Hinck­ley, while Stu­art used to work for War­wick­shire Po­lice in a drugs in­ves­ti­ga­tion unit, once meet­ing Prince Charles through work.

The cou­ple are orig­i­nally from Bid­ford-on-Avon in War­wick­shire, where they met as teenagers.

Pam Glas­gow from Hinck­ley won a ham­per for her work caring for her hus­band.
