Kate who runs Yorkshire Energy Doctor CIC was named a Heat Hero at a special awards ceremony at the Houses of Parliament yesterday.
The Heat Heroes Awards are open to individuals across England and Wales and celebrate those who go above and beyond to help people in their community live in warmer homes.
Not-for-profit organisations including local authorities, health and social care agencies, voluntary and statutory agencies and community groups were encouraged to nominate staff and volunteers for the award and 15 winners were chosen from across the country.
Maria Wardrobe, Director of Communications and External Relations at National Energy Action commented: “Each year I am bowled over by the passion and tenacity that our Heat Heroes demonstrate, always going above and beyond what is expected of them in their job or as unpaid volunteers. It was a delight to meet them and be able to say well done and thank you on behalf of those they help.”
Gillian Noble, Sales Director at ScottishPower said “ScottishPower is delighted to be sponsoring the Heat Heroes Awards for the sixth year. The hard work and commitment shown by these dedicated people within their communities is crucially important in helping to tackle fuel poverty. On behalf of ScottishPower I’d like to congratulate all the nominees and winners.”
