An Inspirational Star – Tanya Pettitt

An Inspirational Star – Tanya Pettitt

This morning, while at work in Wilkinsons Ely, we surprised our latest Community Star, Tanya Pettitt over the in shop tannoy which the store allowed us to take over.

Tanya was nominated by regular customer and now close friend, Sue Farrow.

Sue told us when nominating, “Tanya is always helpful, kind, just goes out her way to help me find what I’m looking for, help pack my bag, count my money, even have a general chit chat and she never refuses to do something.

“Tanya works in Wilkinsons in Ely as a cashier. She has cerebral palsy and I am disabled too. She always has a smile on her face and cheers me up. I didn’t know of her disability until she told me.

Shes an inspiration 🙂

While arranging the surprise we spoke with her 2 managers Jo and Trudy and both said that Tanya was a real trooper and no one deserves it more.

Tanya first came to our attention when Sue posted a Shout Out Sunday on our Facebook page and hundreds of followers commented about how Tanya is a Star.

The award was presented by Dean of Ely Cathedral, Mark Bonney who sponsored this award to Tanya.
