A tireless safety campaigner from Huddersfield has won a national award.

Deighton mum Stacey Rodgers has been named as one of the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents’ 2016 Archangel award winners, due to her work to highlight the dangers of carbon monoxide.

Stacey, 38, who founded the safety campaigning Dominic Rodgers Trust in memory of her son, who died aged 10 in 2004 due to carbon monoxide poisoning, said: “I’m still shocked.

“I thought it wasn’t real at first because the email went into my junk folder at first.

“I’m very pleased because it shows that we are keeping the momentum going with our campaigns.

“We’re just thinking of new ideas now and hope to do something to raise awareness of carbon monoxide in Huddersfield later in the year.”

Her son Dominic died in his bed at a house the family were renting in Fartown.

Fumes from a faulty boiler leaked through a passageway into his bedroom.

A spokesman from RoSPA, said: “Stacey has worked tirelessly to promote carbon monoxide awareness, running local campaigns, working with a range of different organisations and participating in the All Party Parliamentary Group on Carbon Monoxide, the CO All Fuels Forum and other key groups.

“She has toured schools, campsites and universities spreading the CO safety message and is currently involved in a programme called Project Shout, working with university students to produce short videos which will be available on YouTube, with the winner of the competition being broadcast on TV.

“She is an exceptional and brave lady, and is a worthy winner of the RoSPA Archangel Award.”
