A charity worker has been nominated for this year’s Comet Community Awards.
Alison Camp, of Letchworth GC, runs the Extra Smile Project alongside husband Eric, and has now been nominated in the Charity Champion category.
The Extra Smile Project, based at the town’s pentacostal church, seeks to support families by providing practical support and solutions to them in times of need, undertaken maintenance work such as decorating or repairs.
She was nominated by Caroline Birght, nieghbourhood officer at North Hertfordshire Homes, who said: “They have helped several of our vulnerable tenants with a range of services. They have helped to clear a property of rubbish, tidy a garden that has become too much for someone to handle, decorated properties and they will always try to assist with any task they can.
They give up their free time to assist people, and they do not charge for their services and I think they deserve some recognition.”
