A YARDLEY woman has been crowned a ‘community champion’ for her work with Solihull Mental Health Services and the borough’s Daybreaks Kennels.
Along with the title, Ruth Boswell has also been awarded a bursary of £1,000 to put towards her work at the kennels, a re-homing centre for retired greyhounds.
The 41-year-old, who lives in Queens Road with her husband and six greyhounds, has been working with Daybreaks Kennels for five-and-a-half years.
Ruth, who was nominated by her colleagues, is also involved with the Solihull Mental Health Services as part of her role.
She said: “I was so pleased to be awarded this money which can be used to renovate the housing and improve facilities for the dogs and of course all our visitors to Daybreaks.”
