We’ve teamed up with The Wine Merchant Magazine & Hatch Mansfield to thank local heroes during Covid-19. We’ve had dozens of nominations and will be announcing the final two prize winners on Thursday. We want to celebrate those people doing the right thing and helping make lockdown easier and better for other people!
Last week we have four very deserving winners: Vic, Terry, Belinda and Ali who have all received a bottle of red and white which has been kindly donated by one of our customers.
Today’s winners are….
Kellie Hughes- Multiple Nominations
“I’d like to nominate Ruth Chew in West Bradford.
Right from the get-go, she established a low-key mutual aid group which has delivered shopping, prescriptions and little treats to vulnerable people across the village.
Ruth has organised a team of more than 20 volunteers on a rota basis and coordinated their efforts as well as putting in several shifts herself. She sorts the prescriptions when they are delivered to her house and provides maps and advice to volunteers on how to find the more out of the way locations.
This has created a huge sense of wellbeing and resilience in the community and made a huge difference to how the village has handled the lockdown”.
Join our mailing list to nominate a local hero and be the first to find out who the next Local Covid Heroes are.
