OUR NEWS December 2020
As we approach the end of what has been a hugely challenging year with the prospect of restricted Christmas and New Year celebrations, we would like to deeply thank all our supporters and volunteers. The work you and so many others have done has been immensely beneficial to thousands of people and will continue to be of huge value into next year.
With nearly half (44%) of our new members surveyed since March wanting to actively help make their community a better place to live we couldn’t be more delighted this month to announce the winners of the Co-op and Neighbourhood Watch Neighbour of the Year Award 2020 and Young Neighbour of the Year Award 2021. The winners went above and beyond to support others in their community. In our winner’s words:
“I really believe that being a good neighbour is about looking out for each other, and I hope I’ve encouraged people to actively get out and support their community – even virtually.”.
Shaun Blagdon, Winner of Neighbour of the Year Award 2020
We have so much to shout about this month from an inspiring listening to communities blog, to our successful bid to the National Lottery Community Covid-19 Fund, and much more.
