Woodley's Citizen's Awards 2020 has been announced and we're very pleased to share news that our very own Sam Milligan was awarded the Mayor's Award by then Woodley Town Mayor Cllr Kay Gilder who quotes;
"Over 24 years ago, Sam approached the Town Council with an idea to help reach and support the young people of Woodley who did not want to attend the then provided youth clubs. He converted a van to provide a mobile service packed full of information that was relevant to teenagers, a computer they could use, tea and coffee and a friendly ear to listen to their views and problems. The Town Council then employed Sam as a part time Youth Outreach worker. Just Around the Corner (JAC) was then born through Sam's experience and commitment with young people. Sam is the most dedicated youth worker I have ever met; he and his family have given their lives to help the vulnerable young people of Woodley and surrounding areas and I feel that Sam is truly the most deserving person for the Mayor's Award."
Congratulations Sam Milligan!
