Outstanding Service Award in the Community Partnership Category highly commended 2018



I am a member of a small team who founded the UU staff community choir. During 2018 to 2020, as a member of the choir team I helped organised choir events and joined the 40 strong choir to perform at 23 internal and external civic events e.g. Coleraine 50th celebrations for HRH Prince Charles; PSNI Choral Service; NHSC Bereaved by Suicide concert; Causeway Hospital well-being event; Graduations, Coleraine Well-Being weeks; Portrush Golf Open; Coleraine Borough Council’s Christmas Lights switch on. The choir also raised £2,324.40 at a Riverside Theatre Charity Event and £226 for the Simon Community from a Christmas fundraiser. I have been instrumental in boosting morale and enhancing a sense of community and pride among staff through the creation of group singing twice a week as part of UU staff community choir.
