Working with Older People 2014: Hazel Richardson

Published 9 October 2014

 

Hazel Richardson won the Working with Older People category in our 2014 Love Where You Live Awards. 

After setting up a junior Neighbourhood Watch for the Warwick area of Knottingley, she contacted businesses to help the group – the Warwick Watchers – clear rubbish from a rundown ‘cut-through’.

The Watchers also secured £1,800 of Proceeds of Crime funding to buy litter bins, gaining new skills while creating a sense of community.

She said: “It’s a bit mind-boggling. It’s nice to be appreciated by those who you are trying to help, and it’s great to know that you’ve got the support of local people.”
