“The smile and the wave say it all” Joe Doherty has won the Choice Muriel Smyth Good Neighbour Award 2020.

Joe lives at Donal Casey Court, our sheltered living scheme in Derry/Londonderry.  Joe was nominated for the Good Neighbour award by a host of his fellow tenants.  It is clear from his friends’ many testimonials that he is a support, a gentleman and a friend to everyone at the scheme, he even checks in on Mary the scheme co-ordinator to make sure she is doing ok.

One neighbour commented-                                         

“I am not the only one he helps, he helps us all, and nothing is too much trouble, always with a smile and a joke.”

Our judging panel found this decision very difficult as they were overwhelmed with the moving nominations of so many of our wonderful tenants.

On behalf of everyone at Donal Casey Court and Choice, congratulations Joe on your well deserved award.
