An Inspirational Community Champion

Yesterday I had the pleasure of welcoming my Hexham Constituency Community Champion of the Year Alicia Armstrong and her mother Maria to Westminster Hall, together with Gareth and Fiona Jones of RedHot Property who so kindly sponsor the awards. Alicia is a leukaemia survivor who has since set world records at swimming in the World Transplant Games. She is also an ambassador for organ donation and her achievements are truly inspirational. Part of Alicia's prize was a donation to her chosen charity, Josie's Dragonfly Trust which supports young cancer patients and their families. Congratulations to Alicia- a very worthy winner and a wonderful member of our community.
