The founder of a voluntary organisation that helps families in need with food and friendship has been nominated by the council leader as a lockdown hero one year on from Covid-19.
Croydon Council’s Street Champions network is celebrating a new milestone, with 510 volunteers now officially signed up to help safely dispose litter from the borough’s streets, parks and open spaces.
Our #CroydonTogether campaign to recognise and thank all those supporting their community during the Covid-19 pandemic has received a warm welcome in its first week. From notes of thanks left for Croydon’s bin men on their rounds; to shout-outs for staff in the NHS; rainbows in windows and flowers in gardens, @YourCroydon has been inundated with expressions of gratitude and respect for those on the frontline.
Croydon Council has today launched the #CroydonTogether campaign to recognise and support the efforts of all those working to care for, help and support their community during the COVID-19 pandemic. Whether you are a nurse or doctor in the NHS; a teacher; a council worker supporting children or the elderly, collecting bins or cleaning streets; a community volunteer - or simply, a being good friend or neighbour – we want to hear from you.
