Pudsey, Horsforth and Aireborough MP Stuart Andrew was delighted to present one of his constituents, Mrs Sigrid Hambly, with the prestigious ‘Hero’ Award from the Chartered Trading Standards Institute (CTSI).
After finding herself the unwitting victim of a scam, Sigrid decided to join the National Trading Standards Scams Team as a Mail Marshall. Sigrid has worked tirelessly with the police and trading standards services to arrange awareness workshops at various locations in the constituency, and she has made it her personal mission to protect other vulnerable people from becoming victims of such scams.
Stuart said: “I was delighted to be invited to present Sigrid with her award and I am very proud of the hard work and dedicated she has put in to protecting vulnerable people in my constituency from falling victim to the type of scam she was unfortunate enough to experience herself. I am very pleased that she has received the CTSI Hero Award in recognition of her extraordinary efforts to protect vulnerable people in her community from mail scams and I know my constituents are very well protected with Sigrid at the helm.”
