Winner of the award for Penrith Unsung Hero of the Year (Sponsored by O’Reilly Wealth Management) ....

10th July, 2018

Tim Lorton (Tattie Tim)

- General words used …. Bravery, Awesomeness in a crisis, Hero, Such a caring man, always smiling, Heroism, Legend, He’s a hero!  This is for a man who has always got a smile on his face. Always has a cheeky word to make you smile.  But on Monday May 14th 2018 at approximately 2.15pm he was a hero. The horrific accident in the town centre missed him narrowly but unfortunately someone else was not so lucky. Tim jumped into action and thinking nothing for himself went to the aid of those who were injured.  He kept cool and calm until emergency services arrived.
