Jean Cooney, from St Helens, has received national recognition for her fantastic volunteering efforts on behalf of the one of the largest civilian occupational charity in the UK – The Charity for Civil Servants.
Jean, who works at the Department for Work and Pensions, was awarded the Connie Henry Award for her exceptional commitment to the Charity over the last eight years.
The Charity for Civil Servants helps people who work or have worked in the Civil Service – and their families – by offering information, practical support and advice during their working lives and in retirement.
Graham Hooper, Chief Executive of the Charity said: “We’ve received some exceptional nominations for our Volunteer Awards this year. For the people we help, this charity can be a crucial lifeline. Without the efforts of our volunteers and fundraisers we wouldn’t be able to support our lifelong community in the ways we do. These awards are very well deserved.”
