1 Mins read

Justice Minister David Ford yesterday met with two of the winners in the 2014 Justice in the Community awards during a visit to the North West.

Geraldine Doherty from Top of the Hill Community in Derry and Albert Clyde from Riding for the Disabled, Coleraine each received the accolade of Justice Champion from the Minister at an awards ceremony in Parliament Buildings at the end of last year. Each picked up the top prize of £500 for investment in their community projects.

Minister Ford met with the winners in their localities to see first-hand the work they do and formally present them with their prizes. He said: “The Justice Champions represent the best of the work that goes on daily in our community to support the Justice system. These people selflessly give their own time because they have a passion for what they do; they care for the people of our community; and they want to make a difference for the good of our society.

“The Justice in the Community Awards give me the opportunity to highlight this exceptional work that we tend to hear so little about.

“It is also pleasing to see that the proceeds from assets seized from the hands of criminals has been returned to our community through these Awards and is being put to good use.”

Justice in the Community Awards recognise individuals and teams, voluntary workers and staff working within community and statutory organisations across Northern Ireland to promote and support the delivery of justice to make Northern Ireland a better and safer place.
