Volunteer Heather wins special Rotary Award


We were so pleased to hear that one of our most long-standing volunteers Heather Shanks, has received the highly prestigious Paul Harris Fellow Award from the Rotary Club.


 

Heather received the award for her huge contribution of services to Rotary, and a special mention to the work she carries out for Fresh Start. Heather has been involved with Fresh Start for 17 years – before Fresh Start was even officially Fresh Start! She organises groups of volunteers from the Rotary Club of Edinburgh for our Starter Packs, gives several hours a week volunteering and has been instrumental in the launch of our Food Packs Service.


 

Her husband Malcolm received the award two years ago – it is very rare for a husband and wife to both receive the award! Congratulations to Heather and thank you so much for everything you do for us at Fresh Start.
