The idea behind Community Champions was very easy to come up with.
We all know someone who regularly makes your day – just does something or says something habitually which brightens everything up.
They go above and beyond the call of duty or what you might expect: the postman, the grocer, the neighbour…
And in the recent months during the Coronavirus pandemic and the lockdown, these were great people.
They might say that they did nothing special, that they just did their job. But they did more than that.
They all in their different ways made a difference to other peoples lives – and for that, we thank them.
You’ll find their stories in the gallery below.
We hope to have more to share with you, as we pick up recommendations from members of their community and have the pleasure and privilege of saying very simply:
“Thank you for making a difference to everyday life. “
The Community Champions scheme is sponsored by The Woodshed Gallery, a Folkestone small business – and we are grateful to them for their generosity.
We are looking for other sponsors to pick up the baton so that we can carry on appreciating these great people in our community.
Each of our Champions receives a certificate and a voucher towards a meal at one of the L&B group of eating houses:
The Pullman, Lubens Pizza house, The Market Square, The Harbour Inn and their new venture at Tin and Tap.
