Donna Macrae nominated her husband, Richard saying, “I would like to nominate Richard MacRae for this award as I know more than anyone how hard he works for his community.

 “Last summer he organised for sessions at the local youth club for youngsters to attend who were causing anti social behaviour in the area. At the end of the 8 weeks that they had worked together, the anti social behaviour in the area had dropped massively.

He also set up #StaplefordFoodProject to help tackle food poverty in the area and has collected just under 20,000 meals worth which he then delivers to those in need locally. Rat On A Rat is another campaign he started to encourage people to report drug dealing in the area and also report anti social behaviour. This had made a difference around the Montrose Court area of Stapleford. He is also now organising his 16th job fair. These job fairs have helped hundreds of people back into work or training.“
