Broseley Town Council
Citizen of the Year 2017
Every year Broseley Town Council celebrates the work and contribution of members of the public with the presentation of The Citizen of the Year Award. This year the prize was awarded to Helen Vickers.
Helen has lived in the town all of her life and has worked hard to contribute to the community as well as charities close to her heart.
A volunteer Brown Owl at the Broseley Brownies for 12 years, Helen has taught countless children valuable life skills. She now works as the Local Co-ordinator for the Lingen Davies Cancer Trust.
In spite of personal family challenges, Helen has continuously supported people and events in the town, not least through her fundraising for a number of local community groups and charities.
Young Citizen of the Year was awarded to Bailey Evason in recognition for his considerable contribution to Youth Club. His enthusiasm, commitment and helpful attitude in delivering Youth Club activities has been greatly appreciated by staff who agreed he was a worthy winner of the prize.
Other young people commended for their volunteer work within the town were Rebecca Sankey for her help and support of Youth Club, Hal Pritchard for his hard work with Broseley Youth Theatre and Luke Norwood for his volunteer work for Broseley Youth Sports Football Club.
The presentation of these awards is an opportunity for the town to recognise the hard work and dedication of residents and say ‘thank you’. It is people like these that help shape the community of Broseley and they are very much appreciated, respected and admired.
