GB Paralympian receives President’s Award

Hornchurch youngster Amy Marren revealed her surprise after receiving the President’s Award at the Havering Sports Council;s annual prizegiving on Monday.

The 15-year-old Hall Mead pupil, a GB Paralympian and world disability swimming champion, became only the second person to be so acknowledged in the event’s 40-year history, following in the footsteps of former world boxing champion Colin Lynes.

But she said: “I was very surprised. My mum told me we had been invited along, but I thought it was just to be a guest on the night.”

Before handing out the award, Sports Council Preisdent Peter Bruce said: “This is for somebody in the borough who absolutely deserves an award but it’s not fair to put them in a category.

“But I can’t list all of their achievements as we’ve got to be out by midnight!”

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
