Luke Songer with his Jack Petchey award

First published in News

A lifesaver has been hailed again - this time for his involvement with a football club and church group.

Luke Songer, 21, was reunited with Ron Collins, whose life he helped save earlier this month when he found him collapsed and unconscious in Holloway Road, Heybridge.

Last Monday Luke, of Crescent Road, was given a Jack Petchey Foundation Achievement Award for his work with Maldon and Tiptree Youth Football Club and Maldon Methodist Church.

Humble Luke, who won £200 for his football club, said he was a “little bit surprised” with all the attention he has received in recent weeks.
