Solihull Civic Honours Awards

Posted to Uncategorised on Mon, 11 Nov, 2019

Kate+Co were honoured again this year to be invited to present an award at the Solihull Civic Honours awards.  This is an amazing, annual event and celebrates the unsung heroes of the borough.

Outstanding individuals in their local community are nominated by Silhillians to receive an award in recognition of the wonderful work they do in their local area.  It is always a heart-warming and humbling experience and we were very proud to present Lesley Lamb with the Individual Community Involvement Award.

Lesley has volunteered at Bosworth Community Centre for the last 10 years and gives every minute of her spare time to organise and support a range of activities and initiatives held at the centre in order to support local people relying on the centre as a life line.

Cooking Christmas lunch on Christmas day for those with nowhere else to go, a weekly 2 course lunch for those suffering from loneliness and isolation as well as organising day trips are just a few of the incredible things she does.  She described the community centre and all who attend as an extension of her own family.  A truly remarkable lady and it was an absolute honour to meet her and present her with her well-deserved award.  Lesley is a real inspiration to everyone that knows her – Congratulations!!!
