A LONGSTANDING volunteer at St. Luke’s Hospice has won an award for his commitment to the local charity.
Benfleet resident, Mick Allen, was announced the winner of the Fundraising Champion Award at this year’s Basildon Volunteer Awards in November. Unfortunately, Mick was unable to attend the ceremony but was presented the award by Basildon Council representatives last week.
Mick regularly volunteers at a range of fundraising events and has managed to raise more than £21,000 for St. Luke’s Hospice over the last 24 years.
After Mick was presented with the award, Community Fundraiser at St. Luke’s Hospice, Joanne Phillips, said: “It is fantastic that Mick has been awarded the Fundraising Champion Award, he is a very deserving winner! We are all in awe of the amazing work Mick does and we can’t thank him enough for his ongoing support.”
St. Luke’s Hospice offers care for those living with or affected by cancer and any other advanced, life-threatening illness in Basildon and Thurrock, and care is given within the Hospice or at home, wherever that may be.
