A Disability Hero

 

Disability First are proud to announce that our long standing volunteer of 21 years Jeanie King was awarded the Volunteer of the Year Award at BBC Radio Lancashire Community Heroes Awards. This is; “Awarded to a person or group who make a real difference to the community by giving up their time voluntarily to help out a charity or good cause”.

Jeanie has helped thousands of disabled individuals and families by representing them at welfare benefit tribunals, fighting for their rights and entitlements. She supports them through filling forms for appeal, right through to attending tribunals with disabled clients. Jeanie has been a long standing volunteer of the charity and has helped hundreds of people in her time with us.

Well done Jeanie, well deserved!
