A 69-year-old Derbyshire woman who dedicates her time to helping people with tinnitus has been nominated as a Diamond Champion.
Audrey Carlin, from Morton, was nominated as a Diamond Champion in an official Diamond Jubilee project run by WRVS, a charity which supports older people.
The award recognises over 60s who volunteer in their communities and go the extra mile to make a difference to others.
Audrey was nominated as she establish the Chesterfield & North Derbyshire Tinnitus Support Group and dedicates her time to developing the group, producing the newsletter, answering helpline calls, and lay-counselling to support those experiencing the sensation.
Tinnitus is a term that describes the sensation of hearing a noise, such as ringing, whistling, and buzzing, in the absence of an external sound.
Entries will now be shortlisted for each region by a judging panel. All shortlisted volunteers will be presented with a Diamond Champions badge and certificate.
From the shortlist 10 people from each region will be selected to join 70 others at a royal residence to meet The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall.
