Halifax Award

Halifax Award

Jennifer Gurney nominated Maria for the award and this is the story she sent in response to ‘why this person deserves a Giving Extra Award’

This lady runs the charity me & dee which gives families of people with a life threatening/shortening illness a holiday by the sea to create lasting memories while time is short& precious.

She set the charity up 8 years ago, helping over 1000 families. She does not take an income but puts in a lot of hard work to keep the charity running, fundraising & attending meetings. She has a small group of volunteers (me being one) who help when they can outside of their jobs and families. She is an incredible lady as she is also fighting her own battles with ill health, she is so kind hearted & selfless.

The picture shows Maria receiving her award from Karen Kirk and Stuart Hill (Local director for Stoke and Derby) plus £300 in bond vouchers.
