Southend’s Colin Sedgwick wins Silver Citizen of the Year

Many congratulations to Colin Sedgwick of Southend RNLI who has won Silver in the Southend-on-Sea Citizen of the Year Awards. 

Colin was recognized for 55 years of voluntary service with Southend RNLI, including being Lifeboat Operations Manager for 25 years.

He said: “I am very honoured to have been given this award and would like to thank those people who nominated me.   RNLI is a big part of my life, but I like to think I have served Southend in many other ways over the last 55 years and to me this feels like a thank you from the whole town.”

As Silver winner, Colin received a trophy and £300 which he donated to the Mayor’s charity fund.
