It was fantastic to meet Jordan North on Friday (21st May 2021) as he received a Mayor’s Medal from outgoing Mayor of Burnley Lord Wajid Khan. Lord Khan introduced the Mayor’s Medal during his time as Mayor to honour those who had made an impact in the community during the pandemic.
Jordan was nominated by the people in our town to say thank you to raising money for Pendleside Hospice through his famous “happy place Turf Moor” saying on I’m a Celebrity, as well as his continued work as an ambassador for the hospice.
His passion and pride for Burnley was also recognised, helping put the borough in a positive light and being a positive role model, especially for younger people in Burnley and Padiham.
Congratulations to everyone who has won a Mayor’s Medal so far and we look forward to seeing who else in our community is recognised for their hard work.
