The special people that we have rewarded:

1st winner:
Grace Pocock
I am nominating my wonderful mum (Mandy Pocock) as she has been working hard to make scrubs for those on the front line. Since being furloughed (then made redundant) she has put her time to good use! She is now sewing face masks for the NHS, care homes and the general public. She puts a lot of time and care into each one, knowing it can make such a difference to the recipients, enabling people to visit their loved ones. She never accepts any kind of payment for them, she is just pleased to be able to help.

2nd winner:
My nephew Taryn Driscoll who has been volunteering with the St John’s ambulance during lock down. We are very proud of him putting himself on the front line during this difficult time. To us you are our hero.

3rd winner:
I am nominating my mum Louise. She’s worked at a special educational needs school during the pandemic; wearing PPE for hours on end and working hard to make sure that the children still feel happy and comfortable even though lots of things have changed for them. On top of that she’s been a super mum by home schooling my 3 siblings and also supporting me as a single mum to my little boy Noah; being my support bubble and always checking up on us to make sure we are okay. She definitely deserves a little treat.

4th winner:
My partner, Jasmine Newman-Sanders for all her hard work as a Paediatric Nurse in the Intensive Care Unit at Addenbrookes Hospital. I think she deserves this award for working incredibly hard during this pandemic, and caring for those that are in need during these difficult times.

5th Winner
I am nominating Kendall Savage!
Kendall is a newly qualified midwife who has been working through the pandemic. She has also been volunteering to assist vulnerable people, doing jobs for them such as getting their food shop and keeping them company to help them feel less lonely!
