Helen Collins and Zoe Young narrowly missed out on Unsung Hero award, but we're still #KMPTProud!

Date added: 07 March 2019

Voluntary services staff Helen Collins and Zoe Young were shortlisted for this year's Unsung Hero Awards in the Everyday Hero category (corporate function). Both were thrilled to receive the news that they had made it to the final stages of the competition and attended the finalists' gala dinner in Manchester last week.

Helen, manager of Voluntary Services, said : "We were honoured to be nominated in the first instance, and then to be shortlisted to the final three from so many entries, was just incredible.
The awards ceremony was really lovely. To be able to speak to so many people who, in my opinion, are carrying out such innovative work in non-medical roles, was a fantastic opportunity."

Unfortunately Helen and Zoe were not selected as the overall winners in their category; however, it certainly did not detract from their achievement and, if anything, has encouraged them to work even harder on behalf of all KMPT services.

Zoe, added: " I love my role! To attend an event like this, where the work we feel privileged to do is widely acknowledged and praised for the value it adds, is something I am immensely proud of."

Well done – we are all very #KMPTProud of you both!
