Daughter Nominates Her Mum For Award

A health worker has been nominated by her daughter for a Pride of Reading Award.

Becca O’Neill, from Woodley, nominated mum Tracy in the Health Worker of the Year category in the town awards.

The awards aim to celebrate the dedication of Reading’s unsung heroes, to recognise people who have gone the extra mile to help others and make a difference. An awards ceremony is held later in the year.

Mrs O’Neill, 43, of Hearn Road, is a care co-ordinator for community care provider Radis.

Becca said: “She is always enthusiastic about her work and gets on with any task she’s faced with without complaining.

“She always shows a great amount of love for her clients and likes to makes sure they always feel safe and comforted.

“I see on a regular basis the passion, effort and dedication my mum puts into her work, never failing to meet standards and maintain high quality care for her clients.

“I think my mum deserves this award for the phenomenal work she does on a daily basis and I’m sure her clients and her fellow carers will agree with me.”

Mrs O’Neill said: “I think there are a lot more people out there that do a lot more than me but I feel quite honoured.”

There are two new awards this year: the Armed Forces award and Make a Difference award.

The Armed Forces award will go to a member of the Armed Forces who has helped others, shown exceptional bravery or inspired leadership.

The Make a Difference award is for a charity or community group that has made a difference to the community.
