Link Volunteer Honoured by Town
Sue Marshall, a founder member of the Trowbridge Area Community Link Scheme, has been honoured by the town’s mayor. At the annual Civic Dinner, attended by over 200 guests, Sue was presented with the 2017 Civic Award in recognition of the outstanding service she has given to local residents for many years.
Sue has been an integral part of Trowbridge Link since it was formed in 1999, taking on a variety of vital roles in the organisation. She is currently Recruitment Officer as well as one of the Co-ordinators who handle calls from clients, and a volunteer driver. To be recognised for her work with Link, and also for her involvement with the SSAFA Armed Forces charity and the Trefoil Guild, came as a great surprise to her but it was a well deserved accolade for such a hard-working and enthusiastic member of the Link team.
Donation received from Asda Green Token Community Scheme
Trowbridge Link was delighted to receive a cheque for £200 from Asda Trowbridge after being chosen as one of the store’s three charities for their Green token collections in December 2016. Asda shoppers were given tokens to place in collecting boxes located in the Community section of the store and, at the end of the month, the tokens were checked and donations distributed to each of the charities based on the number of tokens each received.
The cheque was presented to three members of the Link team by Nicky Marshall of Asda and will be a welcome boost to Link’s funds.
