Business
Of The Year

ARDSLEY WINDOWS

ARDSLEY WINDOWS.1.jpg

Ardsley Windows are no strangers to our Awards, not only were they one of the first local businesses to support us again but they received recognition themselves last time around when they won our New Business of the Year Award, which they sponsored this year.

 

This local family business was nominated many times once again for continuing to offer great service across the community and for going the extra mile when needed.

 

Stephen, Charlotte, and the team also support lots of community groups and offer help when it’s needed, a real asset to Tingley, Ardsley and Thorpe!

Between these winners they have raised tens of thousands of pounds for local, regional, and national charities and good causes.

 

Not only by raising funds but by volunteering, the time that these people have given to help make a difference to charities and local people is inspiring.

 

Cody & Jordan fundraise tirelessly to pay for defibrillators as part of Cody’s Defibrillator campaign. 

 

Oliver and his WF3 Warriors team mates have raised thousands for Candlelighters who helped Oliver and his family during his own battle with cancer.

Neighbour
Of The Year

ANGIE ARMITAGE

WF3_54.jpg

Angie lives in the Winthorpe estate and was nominated for the kindness and love she showed to some of her neighbours including many of the elderly members of her community.

 

Angie made lots of beautiful Afternoon Teas (sandwiches, bites and buns and cakes) for the Jubilee weekend which she delivered to people across the estate. She also made special deliveries for people who were celebrating special occasions and those who were going through difficult times. Angie brought a moment of happiness to many people and helped honour their special occasion and in some cases her kindness made people realise they weren’t alone and made them feel part of the estate.

 

Some comments we received about Angie:

'A great neighbour, caring and thoughtful, I wish I had a neighbour as thoughtful and generous as my relatives do!'

'Angie is very generous and thoughtful to people. A lovely lady who made my Grandparents very happy, anyone that does that deserves to win.'

Volunteer
Of The Year

BETH LEDGER

We received lots of nominations for Beth, the work she is involved in around the community and further afield is inspiring.

 

Beth volunteers at…

Forest School at Hill Top Primary , Girls Football, Messy Church, The TGTG Food Project, The Food Pantry at West Ardsley Methodist and many more.

 

If there is ever anything in the community that needs a volunteer, she’s always the first to put her hand up and throw her weight behind it. It’s people like Beth that make areas a community and a place we can all be proud of.
