Cllr Giles McNeill and Susan Stainton
Winner - Susan Stainton
Susan’s help and dedication to her neighbours is priceless. She cooks, cleans, shops and offers general chit chat to lift their spirits so they don’t feel lonely. She has inspired others by giving little things which can be a big thing in others’ lives and nothing is ever too much trouble for her. She often goes without things herself if it means other people are happy.
One resident even classes her as her adopted ‘stepmother’ after helping her through having cancer twice last year. She cooked and cleaned, collected prescriptions and looked after her pets. But more importantly helped her through some really dark times.
Other ways that she helps her fellow neighbours can be from putting washing in a tumble drier and getting fish and chips at lunch times to simply chatting.
She gets so much enjoyment by helping others, and nothing seems to stop her!
