At the moment Bacs the people behind Direct Debit are running a campaign for one special person to win £1,000 each month from February – October 2012 (nine prizes in total).
Do you know someone special who deserves a Big Break for one reason or another? Maybe they deserve to take a break and get away from it all, or to help them realise their dreams, or perhaps simply as a thank you. Why not nominate them to win their very own Big Break? Direct Debit has nine Big Breaks of £1,000 cash prizes to give away in 2012 – and every nomination will count towards a donation from Direct Debit to Marie Curie Cancer Care – so they get a Big Break too.
In order to nominate my sister in law Debbie I had to say in 100 words or less why I think she is deserving of a big break, so this is my nomination.
My sister in law Debbie works tirelessly for her local community Dormanstown, which is an extremely deprived area of Teesside. She is the founder of The Ladies of Steel a charitable group that focus on the local community including providing a youth club for 8 to 15 year olds, a youth dance troop, in addition to family galas and regular children’s parties for Christmas and Easter. The ladies of Steel were awarded the honour of Voluntary group of the year 2010 by the Redcar & Cleveland Voluntary Development Agency. Debbie does all this whilst managing The corus sports & social centre.

I am honored to have such a wonderful sister in law, she was a tower of strength to me when my mum died and is the hub of her family. At the moment she is trying to put on a special event for 120 local disadvantaged children for the Queens Jubilee and if anyone can help with things for the goodie bags or raffle prizes, then please do get in touch with me.
I have not been compensated for this post, I just think that she really deserves it.
She sounds lovely. Hope she gets a break x
A worthy nomination and what a lovely family picture! 🙂 xx
