Hull Charity Founder is Community Hero in recognition for 18 years dedication and hard work

Jean talking over cup of tea


The founder of a Hull-based charity which has helped thousands of local people over the last 18 years has received an award for her hard work and dedication.jean

Jean Templeton is Hull City AFC’s latest Community Hero, an award she has received in recognition of her commitment to her community, in establishing and running the charity Hull Churches’ Home from Hospital Service.

Jean and four volunteers from the charity will be guests at the Tiger’s home game against Crystal Palace on November 27th, with tickets courtesy of club’s East Stand sponsor Neil Hudgell Solicitors, specialists in claims for personal injury and medical negligence.

Jean said: “We are all really looking forward to the match, I am very excited about it and it’s fabulous to be honoured in this way.”

Jean was nominated as a Community Hero by Stephen Hackett, one of around 100 volunteer workers at the Charity which provides free help and support to vulnerable people upon discharge from hospital.

Stephen said: “Jean left her career in social work to start up this local voluntary organisation. This Community Hero Award is great timing and a fitting tribute to Jean as it comes just as we are celebrating our 18th year.  We still give a great welcome to new volunteers and would love to hear from anyone interested in working with us.”

Since the start in 1994, Hull Churches Home from Hospital Service has trained hundreds of volunteers and works closely with Macmillan Cancer Support and Hull City Health Care Partnership to provide help for people in their homes in the early weeks after discharge from Hospital.

Jean explained: “I took a sabbatical from work in the 1990s and I wanted to find out how a new organisation could help the local community. I spent time researching in depth where people most needed support.  Overwhelmingly the need lay in helping people who leave hospital.”

Neil Hudgell, Managing Director of Neil Hudgell Solicitors, said: “I am delighted that we can offer Jean and her volunteers these tickets to the match.  It’s a token to say ‘thank you’ to her for all the work she and her charity have done to help individuals and communities in Hull.”

A Community Hero is an individual nominated by their friends, colleagues or family for the contribution they have made to their local community.
