A community project which supports residents struggling to make ends meet has praised the work of its tireless volunteers for changing people’s lives.

Shildon Alive, which serves the County Durham town and beyond, provides crisis support, works to alleviate social isolation, and offers free meals to families.

The initiative was set up in 2014 and has now been handed the King’s Award for voluntary service.

Set up by Paula Nelson, project manager, and run by staff and volunteers with the support of St John’s Church, the project provides hundreds of meals each week for individuals, children and families facing challenging circumstances.
