Peter McMullan and Michelle Hatfield, Corporate Responsibility Director, George Best Belfast City Airport.

The modest animation lecturer from Coleraine who was “just doing what anyone else would have” will just have to get used to being hailed a hero after rescuing his elderly neighbour when she collapsed at home.

“I was shaking and speechless when I heard my name being called out,” Peter McMullan said.

“I can’t believe it. I’m sure there are a lot of people out there more deserving than me, but I am so happy to accept the award. Thankfully my neighbour is doing grand now.”

Peter was keen to highlight that he had help from other neighbours and said he was “just doing what anyone else would have”.

His partner, Myleen Marshall was thrilled for him as he collected his award at the Grand Opera House and said all their friends and family are so proud of his valiant efforts. “We’re all so proud of him, she said. “Me, the children and parents.”

Michele Hatfield, from George Best Belfast City Airport, presented Peter with his Best Neighbour award.

She said: “Well done to Peter. He is a very worthy winner indeed. We work closely with the community and try to focus on individuals and causes that tend to fall between the cracks, so we are delighted to be involved with Making a Difference.

“Community is a big part of what we do at the airport and seeing individuals that are really making a difference to others rewarded in this way is brilliant.”

After Peter’s heroic rescue bid, mayor of Coleraine Norman Hillis, was another person full of praise. “He really is a good Samaritan and an example for us all to be more aware of our community and the people who live around us. This shows the age of good neighbours is not at an end.”
