REWARDING – Mary Crawley accepts her award from High Sheriff, Peter Lee, and Denise Clarke

In a special award ceremony held at St John the Evangelist Church in Cranleigh, Mary was presented with her comme-
morative plate by The High Sheriff of Surrey, Peter Lee; and Denise Clarke, mother of Alex Clarke – a former Cadet himself, in whose memory the award was created.

Denise created the award, first presented in 1996, as a way for her son Alex to continue to inspire youngsters after he sadly passed away. To win the latest award, Mary completed over 680 hours of service across various events, such as school fetes and sports matches, as well as through her commitments and work with Woking’s Badger Unit for five to 10-year-olds.

ST JOHN Ambulance Woking Unit (District 3) are always looking for new members, young and old, to operate this vital service. Anyone interested in becoming a Cadet or Badger should contact either Chris or Jason on 07765062913, or email at christine.crawley@sja.org.uk (Cadet enquiry), jason.crawley@sja.org.uk (Badger enquiry), for further details on how to join.
