Unsung Hero Wins the Gift of Christmas

22 Dec 2016

Full time carer, Marie Carslaw, has been announced as the region’s unsung hero following a recent Stagecoach Manchester competition. 
Marie, from Oldham, was awarded the prize of Christmas as a ‘thank you’ for her selfless work in the local community. 
As part of Stagecoach Manchester’s Customer Service Week, the bus operator asked local people to nominate a friend or relative whose hard work in the community regularly goes unnoticed or who always goes out of their way to help others.
Marie’s best friend, Donna Godleman, nominated her for showing constant support to relatives and friends, as well as helping to provide food for less fortunate people in the community. In addition, Marie was praised for being an exceptional mother to her three children who are on the autism spectrum.   
Stagecoach Manchester rewarded Marie with a Christmas lunch for her family and friends, as well as providing tickets to Winter Wonderland for Marie, her children and close relatives.  
Speaking about being Stagecoach Manchester’s unsung hero, Marie said: “The award came as such a surprise and what Stagecoach Manchester has done is absolutely fantastic, but I still don’t think I deserve it! Winter Wonderland is a place where I have wanted to go to with the children for some time and I’m very grateful that we have been given tickets to enjoy the experience as a family.”  
Elisabeth Tasker, Stagecoach Manchester managing director, said: “Every day, so many people around the region do extraordinary things that largely go unnoticed. Marie is one of those people and the caring and selfless nature of her work in the local community means she is a more than deserving recipient of this award.”
