SPUC activist to be honoured by MP and mayor

A pro-life activist is to receive an award for her work for SPUC in Leicestershire. Mrs Frances Levett, treasurer of SPUC's Rutland and Melton branch, will receive a Community and Charity Champion award from Mr Alan Duncan, Conservative MP for Rutland and Melton, and Councillor Pam Posnett, mayor of Melton, tomorrow.

Mrs Levett's citation for the award mentions that she has been a member of SPUC since 1972. As well as helping run the Melton branch, she has helped found other local branches. Mrs Levett ran a study-day on post-abortion syndrome for more than 80 people at Glenfield Hospital, and was among the organisers of an SPUC float at the Melton Show parade. The award is supported by the Melton Times newspaper.
