Basepoint Newhaven Sponsors Achiever at Community Awards

Newhaven

Basepoint Newhaven sponsored the Achiever award at the recent Newhaven Community Awards hosted by Charlotte Crookstone, the town’s current Young Mayor on the 2nd May. Claire Duc, Centre Manager was stunned by the range of achievements of people of all ages, particularly by award winner Jennifer Byrne.

Jennifer was seriously injured in a motorcycle accident in Brighton in February in which the driver and her partner Laurence were tragically killed. Despite her own injuries and great loss she has campaigned and set up a petition to increase awareness and the safety of all motorcyclists. She began this from her hospital bed and even managed to get ward staff involved. The aim is to raise enough money to be able to register as a charity and go on to setting up training etc.
