2021 'People of Peace' adult award winner


Sandra Hamilton

Sandra is a winner of the 2021 adult award.

An extract from her nomination form said: "For 20 years Sandra has been inspirational community leader. Her idea for a special needs provision called the ARK has created a base and refuge for children of complex needs to be educated and supported with food and clothing during Covid-19. She has also brought together Croxteth and Norris Green for the successful Liverpool 11 festival, which created a community garden and literature festival. It was supported by the whole community who follow her lead to love, live and learn each day."

Judge, Paul Beesley said: "She is clearly a woman committed to her local community and has displayed over 20 years dedication which has helped so many people."

"It’s a wonderful idea that The Salvation Army is going to cultivate youngsters in the precious soil of Strawberry Field."
