Zac's on the right community wavelength

3rd July 2017

WHEN it comes to caring for local people, Zac Warrington is definitely on the right wavelength.

And he has just been recognised for his unstinting work in the Staffordshire Moorlands – with the help of Leek United.

The Society is sponsor of the ‘Young Person of the Year’ trophy, presented to Zac as part of the Moorlands Radio Community Awards.

Zac, aged 20, of Leek, is a member of Endon Methodist Church, where he operates the AV (audio-visual) system each Sunday and occasionally for funerals and weddings.

He regularly visits elderly members of the church’s congregation to help with whatever they need, and is one of the leaders at Gateway, the senior youth club, every Friday night.

Zac also works at the Before and After Club at Woodcroft School, Leek, is currently studying for a foundation degree in Children and Young People Services, and has been accepted to start a BA (Hons) Degree in Education Studies at Derby University’s Leek campus in September.

He was presented with his trophy by John Kelly, Leek United’s Operations Director, and Sheila Kirk, Manager of the Society’s Derby Street and St Edward Street Branches, during a special ceremony at Leek Fire Station’s Community Room.

“Zac is a very popular young man, who dedicates himself to helping people of all ages in his community,” said John.

“Local communities are at the heart of everything we do as a mutual building society, and we are therefore delighted to support the Moorlands Radio Community Service Awards and to see this award go to such a worthy recipient.”

June Amos, Show Producer at Moorlands Radio, added: “As a community radio station serving the Staffordshire Moorlands, we feel it is important that the many unsung heroes who do so much for their community are recognised for their good work.

“We are very grateful to Leek United for their support and sponsorship of Moorlands Radio Community Service Awards.”
