I am nominating my wonderful friend and colleague, Julie. She has been my mentor since I joined the Criminal Justice Unit (CJU) at Croydon Police Station over two years ago. Julie has ran the London Marathon twice, in 2003 she supported Leukemia Research in memory of her father. In 2004 she participated in memory of two colleagues who died tragically within a week of each other. She raised £1,400 for the bereaved families. Julie has organised and managed on going, monthly fund raising in our office. Hundreds of pounds have been collected and much needed sleeping bags, thermal underwear, hats and gloves were donated to the Salvation Army to help the homeless. She is looking into helping other charities in the future. Julie is a truly amazing individual, her qualities to inspire and motivate others is relentless. She has inspired many to take up running and join her 'Croydon Running Sisters ' club. Julie really does make the world a better place...all who know her would agree.
