Friend of CABS wins campaigning award

I delighted to be able to post on the CABS blog that Stephanie Warren (Chairperson of Senior Voice - who are supported by Age UK Milton Keynes) has won the Sheila McKechnie Foundation 'Take Action' award.

The Take Action award is for people aged 60 and over who campaign on issues important to them. Stephanie has been campaigning to have the cheque supported by a cheque guarantee card reinstated by the banks. You can read more about the award and watch Stephanie talking about her campaigning work here.

Stephanie has worked with members of CABS on the lifelong learning project OPT-in and given presentations about her involvement at a number of seminars and conferences. Most recently she joined me at the AEA conference in Stoke-on Trent where we gave a joint presentation about our work.
