Selfless Leamington resident receives community star award

A SELFLESS Leamington resident has been awarded for her tireless work for others.

Tilly Verwoerd has received the Morrisons community star award for her work in the community supporting vulnerable ladies, volunteering at the night shelter, meeting people to get them on to the right track and supporting collections for local charities.

The community star award was set up in 2020 to honour those in the community who go above and beyond.

It was created by Morrisons community champion Alex Pearson who saw so much good in the community and wanted to award people who go above and beyond.

Alex said: “I have known Tilly since early 2019. She has always had a beautiful heart and smile. She would be the first one to put herself forward and offer help to other ladies who would need it, whether it be something simple like offering a friendly face and a cuppa, she would always listen with concern and offer a friendly ear.

“Over the years of knowing Tilly she has gone from strength to strength. I am so proud of her progress. Running the Grassroots ladies group, filling in forms to help the ladies access benefits. She is awesome.”
