Carer Of The Year - Denise Billington

A Newquay woman has been recognised for his outstanding contribution to the community at Pirate FM’s Local Heroes awards in association with Truro and Penwith College, held at the Tregenna Castle Resort in St Ives on Friday Night.

The award was presented to Denise Billington, and was sponsored by Welcome Stranger Fish and Chips.

Denise Billington set up the Noah Project in Newquay to help women who suffer from domestic violence.

Denise told Pirate FM the work can include anything from a food parcel and a chat to helping abuse victims escape.

But little did she know that, she’d have to quit her job to keep up with the workload, her marriage would break down and she would end up homeless.

This inspirational woman, who was nominated by her friend Dorota, says helping other women gave her hope.

Denise has created The Noah Project in Newquay which helps women who suffer with domestic violence, but also she helps anyone in need. Due to amount of work she has, she has to resign from work, her marriage broke down, she became homeless herself, but thanks to others she managed to find somewhere to stay.

This lady is always there when she is needed. She is determine to help others, and I cannot even think how many people benefit from her help. She does it all for free, just with a kindness of her heart. If there would be more people like her this planet would be an amazing place to be. Please recognize her good heart and an amazing work she does.
