Anne Pilling did a wonderful job getting Irene Nominated:


Irene Irene Moore, BCAc
Warwickshire

Irene has spent 21 years providing services for the disabled and older members of the community of Rugby. Irene manages the Hoskyn Centre which provides entertainment,
occupational therapy, meals and outings for 50 people; dispelling loneliness that age and disablement can bring. It is
entirely self-funded with no grants and relies on donations and events. It is a unique local charity that provides vital services to the people of Rugby. “Irene has not received any recognition, not even by her local town council”. Irene also looks after her elderly parents and disabled brother in
addition to running and managing the centre.
