This is an opportunity for you to say a special thank you to someone who helps look after you, a family, member, a friend, or many others in our community.
The Armagh I Carer of the Year Award is for those selfless individuals who help look after others, assisting them in the day to day running of their lives, and making sure they are able to live as comfortably as possible.
This award has been kindly sponsored by Sealmax.
Shane McGleenan, of Sealmax, said: “We are so proud to put our name to an award which recognises our real heroes in the community; the individuals making a positive difference to so many lives. It is the hard work and dedication of these people which really sets them apart.
“Their efforts should always be recognised but during this pandemic it is especially important to highlight the lengths people have gone to, helping people who need it more than ever, whether it be a family member, a friend, or even a complete stranger. That is why we are delighted to sponsor Armagh I’s Carer of the Year award.”
