The leader of the SDLP has paid tribute to Derry woman Pat Hume, wife of former party leader John Hume, ahead of her lifetime achievement award from the Irish Red Cross. Colum Eastwood congratulated Mrs Hume who will presented with her award at the Irish Red Cross Humanitarian Awards Ball which takes place in the Clayton Hotel Burlington Road Dublin on November 24. Mr Eastwood commented: "Pat has given a lifetime of service to the wider community of Derry, as well as selflessly dedicating decades to the SDLP and for that, we owe Pat a debt of gratitude. "As a party founded from the Civil Rights movement, Pat is indicative of everything it means to fight for equality and fairness for every person, despite class or creed. "No-one is more deserving of this honour than Pat Hume and I am glad she is getting the recognition for all that she done for our peace process both yesterday and today."
