Industry Charity NewstrAid recently launched a new award to recognise people from the newspaper and magazine industry who have provided exceptional support to newstrade colleagues. The award  aims to celebrate individuals from the newstrade who have gone that extra mile in helping the people they work alongside.

Smiths News colleague Lidia Popa, Distribution Centre Operations Manager, Birmingham received her award from Neil Jagger, NewstrAid CEO. Lidia was awarded the Excellence Award for her fantastic efforts in focusing on the mental health and financial wellbeing of staff at the Smiths News Birmingham depot.

Neil Jagger added. “Lidia is an excellent example of someone wo has gone that extra mile for their colleagues. Having seen some of the support NewstrAid was offering during the Cost of Living Crisis she made sure that her colleagues who did not speak English as their first language understood how they could apply for help and what was available to them. Her work resulted in a number of successful applications for financial help from people who really needed it.”
