Leading Light Award for September

Greg- Leading LightsThis month’s Community Champion is Greg Roberts who is the chair of Eckington youth group UFI.

When cuts meant that Eckington UFI might have to close, Greg led a campaign to keep it open and save the jobs of the youth workers.

Greg has also volunteered at Monday Club in Eckington for six years, where he works with people with learning difficulties and disabilities.

This summer I went to Eckington UFI’s Summer Fayre which Greg organised with other members of the group.

It was a fantastic event with live entertainment, dozens of local stalls, bouncy castles and even a football tournament. Well done, Greg!

Thank you to everyone who has sent me a nomination so far.

I’ve enjoyed hearing about all the good work that people do around North East Derbyshire and I’m looking forward to naming next month’s Community Champion.
