‘Unsung Hero’ – Archway at Abingdon Community Awards

Archway Abingdon Social Group Coordinator Joy Dadswell (pictured on the right) tells us about an award Archway is proud to have received:

The work of Abingdon Archway in reaching out to those affected by loneliness was recognised with an Unsung Hero Award from the Vale of White Horse District Council. The award was presented by Councillor Reg White, chairman of the Council, at a celebration lunch at the Beacon in Wantage. Long-time volunteers Jan Hughes and Andy Foulsham  accepted the certificate and commemorative glass plaque on behalf of all the Abingdon volunteers along with Joy Dadswell, Abingdon Coordinator.  Abingdon Archway was nominated by Abingdon Councillor, Chris Palmer. Congratulations and thank you, everybody!

Thank you too to Joy for everything that she brings to Archway in Abingdon.
