A Boughton woman’s passion for the environment and community education has earned her a Your Champions nomination for the Champion of the Year award.

Ceris Timms, of Boughton, is a director of community interest company Wild Interest, which secures profits to benefit the community through the delivery of environmental awareness projects.

The 38-year-old launched the company last year with two friends, after she was made redundant from her teaching post at Blacon-based Building Young People’s Potential.

“We have set up lots of different kind of schemes to help people living in poverty and the homeless,” she said.

“I care deeply about both the environment and the community, and I find that environmental projects are brilliant for engaging with people.”

Ceris, who is also involved in the project to restore Trafford Mill, received a Community Action Award from Arriva earlier this year for her work with a flower-growing project engaging people with mental health conditions.

Friend and colleague Huw Rowlands, who nominated her, said: “She is a tireless advocate for conservation and the environment, and her time is filled with campaigning and caring for those less fortunate.”
