Irene is our pandemic hero!

01st January, 2021

We’re delighted to announce that Irene is our well-deserved winner of our Christmas competition, nominated by her daughter Emma. 

Irene has volunteered in Swanside community centre for over 25 years where she runs afternoon tea every Friday for pensioners, breakfast club for children, and even line dancing classes. She loves seeing the smiles on the children’s faces and says she gets so much out of the volunteering, which has kept her going through tough times.

Throughout this year Irene has dedicated her time to help with food deliveries ensuring families don’t go hungry, and delivering presents in the run up to Christmas. 

Irene is looking forward to staying at the Holiday Inn Express and enjoying her restaurant vouchers when she celebrates her birthday next year, and we hope she has a wonderful time at the dock.
