Harrogate Funeral Director Nominated for National Award

Harrogate based Co-op Funeral Director, Nicola Major, has been nominated for the national award of best bereavement worker in the UK.  

Now in its fourth year, The Butterfly Awards recognise professionals working across a broad range of industries for the work they do supporting families through the loss of their baby. The awards also recognise families for the strength and courage they show during a bereavement.

Chris Binnie, who nominated Nicola for the award, said: “Nicola's compassion for bereaved parents and dedication to supporting them in every way possible is truly staggering. She is always willing to go above and beyond the call of duty to ensure that parents get the love and support that they need, and the perfect funeral for their precious babies. This award would be a well-deserved recognition of the amazing work she has done for us and so many others.”

Nicola Major, Co-op Funeral Director, commented: ‘I am truly touched to have been nominated for such a meaningful award. As Funeral Directors, we’re here to support people who are going through a heart breaking time, the Butterfly Awards are an important step to make people aware of the support available for people going through bereavement.’

Award winners will be announced at a ceremony in Worcester on October 14th.
