Knowsley awards its Good Neighbours

Published on: Wednesday, 24-September-2014

The stars from Knowsley’s communities were recognised for going out of their way to help others in this year’s Good Neighbours in Knowsley Awards.

The 2014 awards paid tribute to the special people who have made a significant difference to the lives of their neighbours or local community, as nominated by those they have helped.

From giving up time to teach young people to dance and charity fundraising to setting up and running groups for families of children with special needs and people suffering from Alzheimer’s and their carers, residents were nominated for a wide variety of reasons.

The nominees were whittled down to five winners, with one also being chosen as the ‘Borough Winner’.
