Two mazing women, previously featured in the pages of The Jerseylife were recently bestowed the ‘Woman’s Refuge, Inspirational Woman of the Year’ award.

Louise Carson – 1st Prize

“Oh wow! It’s with huge pride and surprise I can say I’ve won the ‘Woman’s Refuge inspirational woman of the year award’.  It’s really beautiful that despite 49 other inspirational women being nominated, that I won for environmental projects. It’s so important to me and so encouraging. Thanks to Soroptimist International Jersey and the Woman’s refuge.

The award was really for everyone involved in:

All of the volunteers who actually make anything happen- THANK YOU, I really feel I’m just a figure head in this.

To my partners in crime Viki Lucas, Kalina Le Marquand, Louise Bamber and Dave Carson – THANK YOU

So glad my brother Philip Le Claire, sister-in-law Alison Bishop, Husband David Carson and long-term friend Stephanie Bass were there to witness me feeling so overwhelmed and humbled by this.

Thanks so much to the person who nominated me Morgan D Helen”
