We announce our BMG Good Sorts winner for April - Heather Walker

Written by Media Manager.

The nominations for BMG Good Sorts are coming in thick and fast now, with some very deserving people getting the nod from their friends or those touched by just how much of a Good Sort they are!

We are very pleased to announce April's BMG Good Sort - Heather Walker.

Here is the nomination direct from the Nelson Mail website, and what a great one it is.
We think that Heather may have an indication pretty quickly just who is behind this one!

Heather is an amazing woman!

She has been a volunteer for as long as I have known her (about 13 years) and contributes so much to this community. Not only has she been an amazing support to me and my son (her grandson, she is my ex mother in law) whom she has been helping care for while I have been able to fulfill my career.

She has a passion for children with disabilities and feels they all should have a chance at trying new sports. She has established the Fulton Hogan Basketball League at the Jack Robbins Stadium where these children have the opportunity to play basketball and also interact with other teams. She contributes towards the Cancer Society Nelson Relay for Life, every year delivers daffodils for the Cancer Society Nelson, she helped clear the Trafalgar Centre when they had to close down, and also has been getting cricket and soccer on board for the children with disabilities which she goes to every single week.

She is the kind of lady who do ANYTHING for ANYBODY without ANY fuss, she is one of a kind.

I know there is so much more I have forgotten but I really feel I would love for her to win this as my way of saying "Thank You" for everything she has done for me and my son over the years and also the whole community.

I think this is a wonderful reward for many of the volunteers here in Nelson and I look forward to seeing the outcomes :)

Many Thanks
