An inspirational woman from Tandragee has been shortlisted for SuperValu SuperStars awards and will attend a prestigious awards ceremony at Titanic Hotel, Belfast on November 21.
Samantha McCartney has been selected as a Social Enterprise SuperStar finalist and has a very unique story to tell.
Samantha has been shortlisted for her work as Head of Catering for Step by Step’s One Eighty Restaurant, a social enterprise that trains young people with learning disabilities for employment in the hospitality industry.
Offering a full menu to the public on a daily basis, the restaurant responded to a need for more specialist training for young people with learning difficulties and works to combat the stigma that often impedes those affected.
The glittering finalists’ ceremony will be hosted by TV personality Pamela Ballantine and the overall winner will walk away with £1,000 for themselves and a £1,000 donation to a registered charity of their choice.
Stephen Bogle, SuperValu Brand Manager, said: “The SuperValu SuperStars campaign uncovers and recognises remarkable individuals from all parts of the community who have gone beyond the call of duty.”
