A Yorkshire Water worker has received an award for her charity work.

Erica Lack, from Sheffield, has been presented with WaterAid’s Speaker of the Year award at the charity’s annual supporters’ meeting earlier this month.

She was nominated for her support of Yorkshire Water’s WaterAid committee and the Sheffield Local Group, as well as her volunteering to attend meetings to talk about the work of WaterAid.

Since getting involved with the charity six years ago, Erica has helped to organise a range of events that include fishing competitions, corporate balls, quizzes, art events, dances and talks.

Erica said: “My nomination was a surprise, as I know I am just one of many dedicated WaterAid volunteers.

“I am very flattered to be given this award and it is lovely recognition for the small part I have played in some wonderful events which have raised much needed funds for a life changing charity”.

Dave Hillyard, WaterAid’s head of major partnerships, said the honour was well deserved. He said: “Erica’s passion and inspiration to see a world where everyone everywhere has clean water and safe toilets, shines through.”
