The last year has been extraordinary, with the COVID-19 pandemic changing how we live and work but more importantly, it has brought our communities together.
We all know of someone - or a group of people - whose contribution to their community over the last year has been particularly impressive, so we are launching a special campaign to celebrate those rural heroes who have kept us all going. Whether they delivered our shopping, organised food parcels for our most vulnerable, sewed facemasks for those on the front line, kept our community together with socially distanced street workouts or quizzes, or just simply put a smile on our faces.
We want to say thank you to all those who went the extra mile for their hard work and for keeping us going through these difficult times. By nature, our Rural Heroes will be focussed on the needs of others and never expect praise, so it’s our job to change that - but we need your help.
