Wombwell volunteers are the best

WOMBWELL volunteers are among the best in Barnsley – and that’s official!

At a recent celebration of volunteering, Barnsley Federation of Tenants and Residents gave gongs to those who give their time to help others.

Wombwell winners were Good Neighbour Anita Scott for her huge community spirit, the Cole Brothers for ‘delivering projects’ to business and community, Wombwell TARA for its social activities and Wombwell’s Mike Bretton was Volunteer of the Year for his heavy involvement with groups.

Other winners included top fundraiser Joan Daykin, of Great Houghton. Grimethorpe’s Elsie Smith won the Berneslai Homes prize and Ardsley Residents’ Association won TARA of the Year

Federation chair, Joan Whitaker, said: “Anyone who gives up their time to help others is truly worthy of an award”.
