Rushmoor Community Award 2019 winners

Last year we gave the award to Stella Olivier from Farnborough and Suzanne Skippage from Ash Vale, who we recognised for their many years of volunteering.  

Former councillor, Stella Olivier served for more than 20 years as one of the trustees of Farnborough Community Centre, heading up the team of volunteers that managed the building before stepping down at the end of 2018. She also spent 13 years running the Age Concern Luncheon Club at the centre.

Stella also served on the local community health council and the Hampshire Youth Bureau and spent 11 years as chairman of governors at Grange Community Junior School.

Suzanne Skippage is a former teacher who volunteers for the Mustard Seed Autism Trust, is a member of the Fit Lives Team that provides community support at Farnborough Leisure Centre to both staff and users. She also has mentored a teenage mother at The Source Young People's Charity in Aldershot.  

Through St Peter's Church in Farnborough Suzanne also helps run a fortnightly lunch club for older people, is a deputy churchwarden and a pastoral assistant.

The two women were presented with the award by the Mayor of Rushmoor, Councillor Sue Carter.
