At the end of last year, we put a call out on our social feeds to help us find someone special who we could reward for going above and beyond to support our local community.
Margaret Smith was nominated by her daughter, Emma, and has been chosen as our local hero after selflessly caring for her close friend who had fallen sick with cancer. Margaret became her main carer and went above and beyond to provide her with the support she needed, from food shopping and cleaning, to haircuts and administering medication.
As a small thank you for all of her hard work we rewarded Margaret with a £250 M&S gift card to spend on herself.
We’d like to thank all those who entered the competition. We had lots of brilliant entries and heard the stories of so many amazing people who have gone out of their way to support others during this challenging time.
