PCH resident heralded as inspirational

A PCH resident has been named as one of Plymouth’s most inspiring women.
Maggi Williamson from Whitleigh, has been recognised for her tireless work in assisting local charities.
A list of 73 of - the most incredible women making us proud to be from Plymouth - was compiled to celebrate International Women’s Day, by news website, Plymouth Live.
For years, Maggi has worked closely with charity Hope for the Homeless, who serve meals to those in need. She has also worked towards providing much needed essentials at the Garage Café, just off Union Street. She has been a vital source of fundraising for them, to keep people in desperate need from going hungry.
“I was very surprised to see myself on the list”, said Maggi. “I was told by a friend and hadn’t even spotted it until she alerted me. I won an award from The Plymouth Herald in 2019, so at first, I thought she must have been talking about that, but it was something else altogether.”
“It was a very nice surprise though!”
A friend who spoke to Plymouth Live said that Maggi tirelessly sells items to raise money for charities who are very grateful for the help.
Staff at Hope for the Homeless described her as having a huge heart, who always puts others first.
