Congratulation to Riverview tenant Georgie Dickson

17 May 2013

On April 17th, one of Helm Housing's Riverview tenants, Mrs Georgie Dickson, was awarded the BEM (British Empire Medal) for services to local people and her charity work over many years.  Georgie is still very active in her local community collecting regularly for Christian Aid.


Georgie went to Hillsborough with her grandchildren to collect her award. Georgie says â??This was one of the most wonderful days of my life, and it was great to share it with my grandchildren. David Lindsay presented the medal to me, and I also met  Dame Mary Peters. We also had the opportunity to see around the house and gardens at Hillsborough; overall it was a great day out."



Georgie was also nominated by one of her grandchildren recently and was the runner up in the Belfast Telegraphs 'Making The Difference - Best Neighbour Award'


Well done Georgie from everyone at Helm Housing
