Peace award for Fleming of Age Concern
Claudette Fleming will be awarded a Peace and Social Justice Award for her work supporting seniors.
Dr Fleming, the executive director of Age Concern, will be presented with the honour by the Roman Catholic Church of Bermuda tomorrow evening.
She is being recognised because of her work as an ardent supporter, activist and loyal advocate for the rights and dignity of seniors and the ageing in Bermuda, according to a press release from the church.
Bishop Wesley Spiewak, head of the Roman Catholic Church of Bermuda, stated: “I believe that the area of ageing is extremely important and honouring the person who is doing good work in this regard, is a great idea.”
Previous winners of the award were Barbara Ball, the Progressive Group, Dorothy Thompson, Monsignor Felipe Macedo; Gladys Misick Morrell and E.F. Gordon.
Recipients must be a member of the Roman Catholic Church of Bermuda or a resident of Bermuda, who have demonstrated a commitment to some specific area of social justice and or peacekeeping reform in the community.
The event will take place from 7.30pm at St Theresa's Church Hall on Laffan Street.
