The "Carol Thomas Listening Ear and Hands that Hold Award" was awarded this year to Janet Freckleton in recognition of the support she has given to others with a cancer diagnosis, whilst coping with her own personal journey.
"I would just like to take this opportunity of congratulating you all on the success of your 5th Annual Charity Ball. I was honoured to be invited and would just like to take this moment to say a big THANK YOU to all of you from my heart for awarding me with the Carol Thomas award.
It was an absolutely wonderful surprise and made more special as the award is in memory of Carol Thomas and her legacy and to receive it from her husband and daughters.
I would just like to say Thank you again for this 'recognition' because I have enjoyed been a part of cancer support."
God Bless, Janet
