Burnham-On-Sea MP presents charity worker with community award

A Burnham-On-Sea charity worker's tireless efforts have been recognised this week with the presentation of a special community award by the town's MP.

Barbara Thorogood has been a leading light for many years within Burnham's Gateway Club, BAY Centre, Diabetic Group and Stroke Club.

And on Thursday (July 3rd), MP David Heathcoat-Amory presented her with a 'Contribution To The Community Award' watched by the club's members at Burnham's BAY Centre, as pictured here.

Barbara told "It was all a complete surprise so I was thrilled to bits. It was a honour to receive the award from David and wonderful to be presented with it in the BAY Centre."

Barbara has been leader of the Gateway Club for eight years and treasurer of the Stroke and Diabetic groups for five years. She previously ran the town's playgroup for 20 years.

Her certificate states: "In recognition of your outstanding achievements and tireless efforts within your local community. We congratulate you for all that you have accomplished."
