Dedicated Volunteer Receives Award

Dedicated SOAR Health Trainer Naheen Mohammed was honoured at the Burngreave Community Awards recently, receiving a plaque from the Lord Mayor of Sheffield Councillor Anne Murphy.

Naheen, who has worked for SOAR for three years, was put forward for an award to recognise her hard work and dedication in helping people the Burngreave and Page Hall area, where she has been a vital part of the team.

Ruth Lawson, SOAR’s Senior Health Trainer, said: “Naheen has really gone above and beyond her role. In January this year she was the only health trainer in the Burngreave area, so she increased her hours to help us out while we recruited new members of staff.

“There has been a lot of change in our team this year, but Naheen has been great and her commitment has actually helped us reduce the waiting list of people who want to access our services.”

The Burngreave Community Awards recognised the good work being done across the area by several different people from several different organisations.

As well as the Lord Mayor of Sheffield Council Anne Murphy, Burngreave councillor Jackie Drayton was present at the awards, which took place at Sheffield Town Hall.
