These awards go to people who have taken action to make a difference to the lives of others in their community and make their local areas a better place to live. This year the panel made a joint main award in this category.
Main Award – Christine Connolly
Christine Connolly Began working in the Brierley Hill shop in the summer of 1996. She quickly became a vital member of the team there, taking on a variety of duties including sorting, steaming and till work. Chris’s infectious personality quickly became a hit with the customers, many of whom would come in specifically to have a chat with Chris and she’d always make them laugh.
