Town 102 Local Heroes Awards. Passionate about our local community, we sponsored ‘Contribution to the Community’ Award which was won by Janet Damant.

Nominated by Gemma Knight (her Daughter), Janet has been running a drop in centre at St Andrews Church Ipswich for 26 years on a voluntary basis. She provides members of the community with a 3 course meal every Wednesday. Organizing extra events throughout the year like a big Christmas dinner, summer outings etc. They have around 50 people (majority of them being elderly) attend every week. When Janet takes a summer break they all miss it. Along side this she also gives extra help to several of the people that attend giving up her time to take them to appointments, help with shopping.
Janet deserves to be given the recognition for the service she provides and all the effort she goes to as obviously food has to be purchased/ menus organized/ transport arrange for the people etc. Janet gets so much joy out of providing this service and seeing how happy it makes the people who attend to get out and eat a healthy meal and chat to friends for a few hours.
