A DROITWICH woman has received a ‘Good Citizen Award’ from the town’s Rotary Club.
Alice Parker, who was born in Droitwich and attended Chawson First School Witton Middle School, was handed the accolade for meeting the Rotary motto - ‘Service above self’ - after a host of community-minded and caring accomplishments.
Alice, who has two children Sebastian and Sarah and is also a member of St Andrew’s Church, worked in different hotels in the town, before going on to be a cook and housekeeper in a care home for autistic and disabled adults.
She then became a support worker, looking after people, doing their shopping and taking some of them to school.
And, after going through the Girl Guide ranks when she was younger, she became a junior leader - a position she has held for more than 20 years, with her next task being to start a new Rainbow group.
Alice gave a talk to the Rotary Club of Droitwich Spa about taking a troop of girls to Switzerland.
In a citation to Alice, the Rotary Club stated: “Without pretence or self aggrandisement, Alice has quietly helped and cared for many young girls throughout her time in the Girl Guides movement.
“Alice has moved with the times.
“She is a person who has done a lot of good in her community by putting ‘Service above self’.”
