Kiwanis to honour Hero of the Year

Kiwanis Club of St George’s is bringing back its Hero of the Year award.

The 2017 honouree will be celebrated at a dinner on Thursday at the St George’s Club.

Spokesman Daron Lowe explained that the club considered nominees who not only tried to save a life but also put their own lives at risk to do so.

The club added that details of the hero’s exploits will be announced and a special plaque will be presented to this year’s recipient.

The last recipient was Anthony Mouchette, then a police inspector who talked a lady out of jumping from a high cliff along East Broadway in Hamilton in 2006.

He was presented with the award in 2007.

Kiwanis is a global organisation of volunteers, dedicated to changing the world one child and one community at a time.
