Top honour for charity champ Pam
A CHARITY volunteer has received a national award for her work with the NSPCC.
Pam Foster, 76, who has worked for the East Cheshire Branch of the charity for thirty years, has been made an honorary member of the national NSPCC council.
The grandmother-offive, from Livingstone Close in Macclesfield, has been honorary branch secretary for 12 years, as well as being Gawsworth and North Rode chairman and secretary and chairman of the special events committee.
She said: “It was great to receive the award.
“The NSPCC is just so personal to anyone with children of their own - you just want to help those not as fortunate.”
In her role as branch secretary, from which she has now retired, she brought on board some high profile branch patrons including George Osborne MP, David Rutley MP, Fiona Bruce MP and the Chief Constable of Cheshire, Simon Byrne.
She said: “I’ve really enjoyed the work and can still be called on if needed.”
The Countess of Wessex presented Pam with her award at Central Hall, Westminster, where she also received a badge from NSPCC chairman Mark Wood.
