Lauren showed the very best of what it means to be a Hero of Bolsover. During a residential house fire, Lauren ran into a burning building to save an elderly resident who was trapped inside and couldn't get out. Lauren's bravery in the face of immediate danger, putting others lives before her own safety is what being a Hero of Bolsover is all about!
