The Heat Heroes Awards, are open to individuals across England and Wales and celebrate those who go above and beyond to get the recognition they deserve – for helping people in their community live in warmer homes.
Held in partnership between ScottishPower and the charity National Energy Action, this year there were some very strong candidates, but the judges managed to select fifteen worthy winners.
Not-for-profit organisations including local authorities, health and social care agencies, voluntary and statutory agencies and community groups were encouraged to nominate staff and volunteers for the award.
David Bolton, Assistant Director at Melin Homes said of Rhian; “We are all really proud of Rhian and she is a credit to our team. Rhian has been involved in helping save money and energy for hundreds of residents in the last year alone. This award just confirms what we already know about Rhian’s excellent work and passion to make a difference.”
Maria Wardrobe, Director of Communications and External Relations at National Energy Action commented: “Each year I am bowled over by the passion and tenacity that our Heat Heroes such as Rhian demonstrate, always going above and beyond what is expected of them in their job or as unpaid volunteers. It was a delight to meet them and be able to say well done and thank you on behalf of those they help.”
