Town councillor Pat Jones, who supports countless charities and community groups, has been put forward in the Citizen of the Year category sponsored by the North-West Evening Mail.

Councillor Jones said: “I am amazed. There are so many people in Ulverston who work much harder than I do.

“It’s made my week. I’m speechless and that’s not like me.”

As well has her work with the town council, Cllr Jones volunteers with Age Concern and is a governor at Ulverston Victoria High School.

She is also a member of the Friends of the Coronation Hall and the Ford Park Community Group and can regularly be seen helping out Ulverston in Bloom and giving her time to assist various groups and charities at coffee mornings in the Coro.

She said: “I just love fundraising, and I love being with the people of Ulverston.”

Born in Barrow, Cllr Jones moved to Burnley in 1959 with her husband Allan but kept a holiday caravan along the coast road and they returned to the area full time in 2001.

Cllr Jones said: “The people are the best thing in Ulverston. You can get fresh air and lovely mountains anywhere but it’s the people that make it. I would be so proud to win but just being nominated is brilliant.”

This year’s Heart of Ulverston Awards, proudly sponsored by the Evening Mail, Siemens, GSK and Ulverston Victoria High School, will be held at the Coronation Hall on October 10.

Prizes will be awarded for 11 categories: Citizen of the Year, Young Citizen of the Year, Group or Project of the Year, Teacher of the Year, Sports Volunteer of the Year, Carer of the Year, Courage Award, Environmental Volunteer, Parent/ Guardian of the Year, Employee of the Year, Lifetime Achievement Award.
