Warsop Club are so proud of Gloria Humphrey, President of Warsop Inner Wheel. Gloria has won the NSPCC Childhood Champion Award for Outstanding Achievement of the Year for East of England!
The Childhood Champion Awards is a new set of awards at the NSPCC, all about meaningful recognition of those who go the extra mile. It’s about more than length of service. It’s a chance for colleagues on the front line to share real stories about how the volunteers they work or volunteer alongside are an inspiration, and why every moment of time they give the NSPCC brings us closer to ending child abuse in the UK. Emma Grishin, Area Coordinator (Nottingham City and Nottinghamshire -NSPCC Schools Service) shared with the award committee everything that Gloria does with and for the NSPCC. From all of the nominations received across the East of England region Gloria has been chosen as this year’s recipient. We are so pleased and proud of her.
On 06 July Gloria met up with all the other regional winners for a gala dinner in London at the Banking Hall in London. The Countess of Wessex was in attendance, as was Dame Esther Rantzen, who both thanked all the volunteers for their amazing work with and for children. CEO of the NSPCC Peter Wanless, gave his thanks too.
Gloria then returned to Warsop to take over as President for 2016-2017 from outgoing President Sharon Smith. The Club meeting held at the Hostess was full with all 45 members in attendance. Gloria also welcomed three ladies to the club with her first inductions of the year. Special guests from local organisations The Oaklands and Warsop Sporting Trust were invited to receive cheques of £600 each and a fantastic £4000 was given to Cancer Research UK from funds the Club has raised in Sharon’s year 2015 – 2016.
New members Lesley Wilson, Joy Brealey and Judith Wood.
