Meet This Year’s Community Champions: Sarah McCarthy

From TDC's Mark Drayton

Over the last year Sarah has been a key player on her estate but also in the wider community. Sarah is Chair of her Resident group but also a vital member of the Phoenix Social Supermarket which has provided thousands of food parcels for her estate and the wider Tarner and Hanover community. This service has been key to providing much needed support to her community and has worked throughout the COVID pandemic.

However the list goes one. Somehow Sarah finds the energy to campaign to get the old Freebutt pub recognised as a local community asset – a campaign that has just ended in victory and sits on the neighbourhood action plan group. She also Chairs the Hanover and Elm Grove Forum which has tackled a range of issues including anti social behaviour in the community and is currently consulting to make Hanover and Tarner a ‘Liveable’ Community.

I find it hard to sum up Sarah’s voluntary work apart from to say that the area she lives in is a better place for all because of her.
