Award for worker

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Uk&world Update -

A LEAD­ING vol­un­teer with a char­ity has won a na­tional award in recog­ni­tion of her work.

Pam Milne, who is a mem­ber of the Stam­ford branch of Epilepsy Ac­tion, will be pre­sented with the Epilepsy Ac­tion Branch Mem­ber of the Year Award by the group’s chief ex­ec­u­tive, Philip Lee.

Julie Clark, Epilepsy Ac­tion’s man­ager for cen­tral Eng­land, said: “Pam is a ded­i­cated mem­ber of the Stam­ford Branch and won the award for sup­port­ing the group’s fundrais­ing and so­cial events since 1997.

“Pam has been at­tend­ing the branch since the first meet­ing in 1997, and has been trea­surer since this time too.

“Pam’s son Stu­art “was her shadow” at branch meet­ings and was also a val­ued mem­ber of the team.

“Stu­art had epilepsy but trag­i­cally passed away very sud­denly in 2009. Pam un­der­stand­ably finds it very dif­fi­cult to go to branch meet­ings since, as he isn’t there. De­spite this, she con­tin­ues to be the branch’s trea­surer and still keeps in touch with and sup­ports other branch mem­bers. The branch say that Pam is a val­ued mem­ber and friend and they are so pleased that she car­ried on. She has over­come a lot dur­ing the past few years and she de­serves to be recog­nised.”

Mrs Milne said: “I feel very hon­oured to re­ceive this award and would lie to thank ev­ery­one in­volved. The meet­ing’s were part of Stu­art’s life and he made many friends ”
