Blind environmental champion recognised
A blind South Moor resident has been given a 'Caring for your Environment Award' for showcasing a persistent passion for improving his local area.
Malcolm was recently presented with his award by Oliver Sherratt, who sits as the interim chair of the County Durham Environment Partnership. He said: "I was delighted to present Malcom with this award, which recognises people and organisations who through their actions can inspire others. I was so impressed that lack of sight has not affected his passion for his neighbourhood, and what he has achieved has been for the benefit of the whole community, not just those that are blind or partially sighted."
Malcolm was also presented with a copy of his Caring for your Environment Award in braille.
The County Durham Environment Partnership presents Caring for your Environment Awards to individuals and groups who are committed to protecting and improving their local environment.
