Huge congratulations to Renata Kudelkova who is our 2014 Carer of the Year! The Travis Wooster award recognises a volunteer nurse or PA who has gone that extra mile to help and support people, displaying determination and commitment.
Renata volunteered on her first course in 2013, having met one of the Outreach and Support Co-ordinators at the Inter Spinal Unit games. Since then, she has volunteered on a staggering 6 courses supporting people to increase in confidence and independence, and is looking forward to volunteering in Sweden in 2015!
Not content with volunteering as a PA and supporting individuals, Renata is planning to conquer the Uk’s longest zipwire in 2015 to raise vital funds for Back Up.
With an unrelenting dedication to helping people achieve their goals, and the innate ability to carry out her care responsibilities whilst always having a huge smile on her face, we are pleased to honour Renata with this award.
If you have been inspired by Renata’s story and are a qualified nurse or PA who would like to support people on our courses, please visit the dedicated webpage
