11:56am Friday 27th September 2013 in News
A CHESTER-LE-STREET student has been recognised for her voluntary work in the community.
Jessica Hardy, who studies at Hermitage Academy, is one of the recipients of the Frank Baddiley Award, which is given annually by the town’s Rotary Club to community-minded youngsters at local secondary schools.
Miss hardy, who is doing her A Levels, runs after-school tennis and netball sessions and held one-to-one sessions for a youngster with special needs.
She received a certificate and cheque for £50 at the Chilton Lodge Hotel.
John Stewart, of the Rotary Club, said: “This award is given for service to the community.
“It is a non-academic award and it reflects the whole motivation of the Rotary Club, which is service before self.
“Jessica is an excellent recipient of the award.’’
Other recipients were presented with their awards at a ceremony held earlier in the year that Miss Hardy could not attend.
