Sandra Hack to lead teams out against Rotherham

Saturday's Community Champion is a very special lady who has dedicated a lifetime to helping others. Sandra Hack has worked as a health care assistant at Ipswich Hospital for over 30 years, where she has been an active and valued member of staff, going above and beyond to help patients and colleagues alike.  

A part of the hospital’s critical care team, she has been instrumental in helping to train other health care assistants and registered nurses for a number of years, doing what she can to ensure the highest level of patient care is provided, whilst offering assistance to her colleagues wherever she could. 

Sandra even became a member of the hospital’s bereavement team, to give support to those trying to deal with the aftermath of losing someone. 

But Sandra isn’t just a remarkable lady through her profession; she has worked as a matchday steward at Portman Road since 1999, once again looking after others by making sure they have an enjoyable matchday experience. And her thoughtfulness doesn’t just concern the fans, she makes sure her matchday colleagues are looked after too, by providing homemade treats for them all!  

Sandra was nominated as the Club’s Community Champion by her hospital colleagues and friends Pauline and Annie, who will be celebrating Sandra’s retirement with her on October 31. The pair said Sandra is an incredibly caring and conscientious person and despite experiencing personal difficulties recently, continues to make time to help others.

We’re sure you’ll agree that Sandra is a very deserving Community Champion and we are proud to call her one of our own.

If you know someone who deserves some recognition for doing something special, going above and beyond, shown a huge amount of bravery or given up their time for a local charity, or maybe they’ve shown kindness towards others or deserve a bit of recognition for overcoming adversity, then email your nomination to
