The winner of this year’s Community Champions category is:
Recently Adele attended a course in Bradford for mums, her outspoken nature and inquisitive nature helped others in the group develop in confidence, had Adele not been a participant I expect that the others would not have been developed in such a way. A fantastic ambassador. Adele went onto meet other groups of mums to share her lived experience but more importantly she began her journey with wanting to know more about other faiths, she along with her close family members attended the Community Iftar in City Park this summer, which a year before would have been unheard of. She has visited a mosque again to ask questions and dispel the myths she has heard from within her own community As well as this Adele helps others in her community and has recently helped/supported a neighbour who had been subject of a financial crime, she contacted the authorities and made her best efforts to secure the CCTV. Adele has gone onto to help others within her community, offering support and advice in many ways. She is known for her fearless outlook and she demonstrates compassion for so many. She continues to champion local community interests.
