Volunteers from the Stalybridge getting Together Project receiving their Local Community Heroes Award
Dukinfield and Stalybridge Rotary Club recently hosted a Local Community Hero Awards Ceremony at Ashton Golf Club to recognise the amazing acts of thoughtfulness and kindness being carried out by many local individuals and community groups.
The Civic Mayor of Tameside (Councillor Janet Cooper) attended the event and joined Club President, Ian Cochrane, to present14 awards to our local community heroes.
Ian explained: Last year our Club presented Local Community Hero Awards to those who had stepped up and provided much needed support that would not otherwise have been available to them during the Covid pandemic.
We realised that there are many individuals and local organisations who go above and beyond on a regular basis, irrespective of Covid. This resonates well with the ethos of Rotary in terms of putting service above self. We therefore decided to host an awards ceremony this year to recognise this group of people who have gone the extra mile and continue to support our local communities in Dukinfield, Mossley and Stalybridge.
Congratulations to all our Local Community Heroes. You are a credit to our local community and we thank you for your dedication, passion and hard work.
