Kathryn Mary is a dedicated NHS frontline worker. She is currently an advanced practitioner at the North East Ambulance Service and prior to that she worked in the A & E department at the University Hospital of North Durham and also as an advanced practitioner at a local doctor’s surgery.
She is married and has two children. Kathryn is at the forefront in the care and transportation of very sick people to their local hospitals. She is calm in the face of adversity, she is very caring and patients put their trust in her to help them. Kathryn is truly dedicated and always works over and above her normal hours to help patients and colleagues alike. After finishing her shifts in A & E she would go up to the wards to make sure the patients she had looked after in A & E were ok. At the present time she is first to the patients home to tend to them and assess their situation, and although she has said, herself and colleagues do not have enough of the vital safety equipment, this does not stop them dealing with patients who have Covid 19. Staying with them in the home, until they can be safely transported to hospital.
Kathryn’s present job means that she does not know what she is going to be faced with at each call, this can be violent people, life or death situations, treating a child just like her own at home which really hits home, an elderly person just like her own mother. Kathryn’s motto is treat people as if they are your own family showing compassion, bravery and dignity to the patient.
Even though she is tired both physically and emotionally after every shift, she does not let her children see this and she ensures once she is at home, she is Mum. Before the social distancing, she would take her son every weekend to swimming galas around the north east and also take her daughter to dance and drama lessons as well as helping out at the dance group.
Kathryn has a good sense of humour and this helps her survive in this tough profession. She really is an asset and a gem in the NHS and I would love her to gain the recognition she deserves for putting her on life at risk each and every day
Alan has continued his role as caretaker of a block of flats which houses the elderly. He has worked all weekends and days to ensure that the flats remain clean, tidy and in use. He has completed all this without questioning and as part of doing so has had to isolate himself from his family.
Leanne is a SEN teaching assistant and as part of this key role she still continues to go into work to look after the children of other essential key workers. She volunteered to go on a rota to continue working and has offered to complete additional extra days as well.
A diligent, knowledgeable and approachable member of the team she has been pivotal in changing the culture and ethos of the business in a positive manner.
I am nominating my HSQE Manager, Sonia Jamieson, for an award.
Some of the successes that Sonia has achieved include;
Becoming HSQE Manager – Following her line manager leaving the HSQE department was two people (Sonia +1) and an apprentice. The other member of the team then left the business to relocate leaving Sonia and the apprentice. Through further training, planning & leadership Sonia has taken on the role of HSQE Manager, changing the department in a seismic way. Procedures have been reviewed, amended and reissued to all departments. Accountability and responsibility has been changed, discussed and agreed with policies being updated to show these structural changes. New reporting has been put into place and is being issued to the Board for discussion and action.
Challenging colleagues – This is always completed in a respectful and polite manner but with the best interests of the company at heart. Through persistence, hard work and showing that she has the knowledge she has gained the respect and trust of many of the members of staff that were stuck in their ways. This had led to colleagues changing their approach to matters, the business becoming more efficient and costs being saved.
Maintaining the ISO accreditations for 9001, 14001 & 18001 throughout two different audits – this was with very little training after the manager that previously looked after this element left the business. She has not only completed the audits but has also raised awareness of the ISO, its procedures and it’s benefits to the wider business. Through an initiative of reintroducing the ISO, updating & streamlining the procedures and renaming the non-conformances as business improvements she has enabled ‘buy in’ from the bottom up as well as leadership from the top down.
Mentoring & training an assistant – an existing apprentice has been trained to become the HSQE assistant. A training plan was created, agreed and funding secured for it. This was then delivered via her hard work and determination often putting her own workload to one side to train & develop the individual, then working over to complete her own workload.
Employee wellbeing – Sonia was pivotal in setting up a FIR (Fairness Inclusion and Respect) scheme at the company and after presenting to the Board secured approval for three members of the team to become FIR Ambassadors undertaking a training course. She is also action on other projects that are being introducing into the company including mental health awareness and an employee benefits scheme.
Social value – After becoming a Construction Ambassador Sonia has helped to change the ethos of the company by taking part in many and various schemes within the local community. These are sometimes out of work hours but always take planning which normally has to be completed after the ‘day job’ has finished. Some of this inspiring projects include taking part in Bradford Manufacturing week, talks at schools/universities/colleges/academies, mock interviews with students to get them ‘work ready’, advising careers advisors on the different roles within the construction industry so that they can accurately advise their students, completing construction skills workshops with students, attending events like GCAT (Give Construction A Try) to present to students to explain about the industry & the great opportunities within it and working with a SEN school in Bradford to enter the Considerate Constructors Big Build Scheme – the school came runner up within the national competition and made it into the magazine!
At any of the sponsorship or charity fund raising events Sonia is always present, taking part and getting other people involved. A great example of this was the Bradford Dragon Boat race which we came 4th in (GB’s under 18’s dragon boat team came first and the Army’s Dragon Boat team cane 2nd so we are saying we came 2nd as a non-professional team!). Sonia was there proactively influencing and encouraging the team before the races, was shouting & screaming throughout the race whilst paddling and gave pep talks in between the races. She has signed up to complete the Yorkshire Three Peaks in May with all the proceeds going to Yorkshire Air Ambulance and has managed to convince me to sign up as well!
Along with the monetary benefits she has brought to Cardinal through more efficient & effective ways of working she has also changed the very culture & ethos of the business making it a better more harmonious place to work.
Her energy and enthusiasm is infectious and enlightening which is one of the (many) things that stands her out from others in the company and has led to other females within the company, and at other companies, informing me that she has had a positive influence on their careers and lives.
Everyone at Cardinal would say that she is an amazing woman with boundless energy who is an asset to the business. I think that she deserves to win an accolade to recognise and celebrate this continued positive impact that she has however I feel that Cardinal, as a company, are already a winner as we have her working with us!
Vikki is a great friend, a dedicated wife to Dave, and loving Mum to Emily and Rebecca. She puts everyone before herself and has such a caring personality. She has been there for me when I’ve needed someone to just listen.
As a GP and at the anniversary of her beloved Fathers passing, i know this will be a very difficult time for Vikki, and i just want her to know how much joy and happiness she brings to her Family, Friends and Patients. She is in her own right a Hero
Kay is the Director of Clinical Services at the Mary Ann Evans Hospice.
When she realised the extent of the growing issues with COVID-19 she quickly co-ordinated the temporary redesign all of the hospice’s clinical provision and directed all of our efforts into working alongside the NHS in the local community. Hospice based clinical staff were redeployed into community services. This service is able to respond to urgent calls for help from end of life/palliative patients and families and aims to keep patients at home in the community reducing burden on other emergency services and acute settings.
Kay remains in close communication with our NHS partners and is constantly revising and reviewing the joint approach to care provision to maximise impact and help where it is needed most.
Kay has worked tirelessly to acquire the necessary PPE for our staff to ensure their safety and is available 24/7 for any queries or concerns.
Kay offers those working with her passion, stability, inspiration and above all, support.
As part of the highways maintenance contract our street cleansing teams are out an keeping the streets clean. They litter pick, sweep the roads, wash the precinct areas deals with excess flytips and empty excess of 200 litter bins and dog bins. Considering they are low paid staff they are doing extra such as reporting any issues and hazards in the network (as the inspection for roads are minimised). They dont only keep the streets clean but also keep the street safe. It should be well recognised internally and externally
I would like to nominate Michael for a my Hero award as he is usually the one nominating others and he deserves recognition too.
Michael supports me in all aspects of my Job role, he listens when I’m having a down day, he offers me advise when i need it, he buys me lunch if I’ve left mine at home. He makes a joke if i need cheering up, he encourages me when i don’t believe i can accomplish something, then hes the first to praise me and showcase my accomplishment. Michael makes the workplace a happier place to be for myself and others and i want to thank him and show my appreciation for this with this award.
The Materials Management Team at Stockport NHS Foundation Trusts are doing a fantastic job in ensuring the Trust has all the supplies required, they are going above and beyond.
We take our hats off to the valuable NHS workers, and all front line workers in this difficult time, however I would like to add this young man to that list, who is definitely one of our unsung key workers.
Cory is the only cleaner left on our site, as we had to furlough 18 other cleaners due to COVID 19 outbreak. with near to one million square feet of shopping mall to maintain, this young man has shown fantastic resilience to change, and I take my hat off to him.
He is single handedly making sure that the 41 Security officers on sites, welfare is of paramount priority, this also includes any visiting retailers, and senior managers that are still operating
he ensures that all the welfare facilities are kept in a pristine condition, and that all sanitised areas are also replenished, including all consumables, so that our skeleton work crew can maintain the standards that are expected at Victoria Leeds Shopping Centre
He has been super flexible with his working times throughout this period, and has been a credit to the business, and I feel this individual should be recognised for his achievements. At only 23 years of age he has shown great resilience and maturity in these difficult times.
I applaud that we can recognise these kind of workers, and I hope that Cory will be one of these individuals.
For his relentless and brave efforts in fighting Covid19 despite the risk of putting his family and loved ones in danger. Doctor Murat has devoted himself for the greater good of public.
Jacqueline is an amazing person – one of lives pure souls.
As many, she is a key worker managing 3 homes for adults with learning disabilities. Also at home she is a mum to a 18 month baby and step mum to her husbands 13 year old son (who permanently lives with them) and his 5 year old daughter who spends 50-50 time with them. Jacqueline lost her first two babies in awful circumstances – a ruptured ectopic in January 2017 and then gave birth to baby Oliver in sept 2017 . Oliver had Spina Bifida and other complications and was incompatible with life. I mention these two losses as I feel it is pertinent to why I have named her as my hero.
At this time of Covid 19 Jacqueline has worked tirelessly to ensure that the adults that are supported in her homes receive the best continuity of care that she can provide. Even though her young baby was long awaited and very treasured following her history, Jacqueline has been on call 24 hours a day to support staff at a difficult time and, at times to go in herself to cover shifts. She has continued to then continue full time in her managerial roll and has also established another much needed home for more adults with learning difficulties. All the time she has worked like this she has continued to be a fantastic mother to their three children – home schooling where appropriate and teaching life skills and respect. I know that at this time MANY mothers continue in the same way. However, I do feel that Jacqueline has and continues to go above and beyond any other key worker I have known ( and I was a midwife for 32 years and remain a key worker today) She is an inspiration to all who come into contact with her and continue to spread hope and joy to all and never stops smiling or complains about anything – a true hero!!!
Farmers Rob and David keep over 1500 people entertained every morning videoing life on their very busy farm. New lamb, foal, calves and piglets being born with the joys and sometime traumas of it. I am alone and this gives me a reason to be happy every morning and during the day. They have redeployed staff to work to keep the local people fed by keeping the farm shop open. The whole Cannon Hall Staff deserve this award. Life for me in lockdown would be very different without their 1 and half hour daily videos. I cannot thank them enough.
Elaine is an immunisation nurse working in the community providing vaccinations to all members of the west Sussex community from school children to the elderly and infirm. She had previously retired but rejoined the NHS to contiue this work and has been doing her job throughout this crisis exposing herself to risk of contamination at any time. She was not provided any PPE and has purchased what she could do give her at least some protection. she is in her 60’s and could be at home safe and sound but continues to go out everyday to continue to deliver this vital service which I think should be recognised.
They all volunteer to come and help build the field hospital at the SSEC Glasgow with out asking what and if they were going to be paid well done all from PFP Ltd for the effort.
Alice has tirelessly worked as an NHS nurse at Kingston Hospital and further has had to cancel her wedding to her policeman fiancé Michael. As a couple they are both on the front line, hardly able to see each other during these difficult times. I would like Alice to get the appreciation she deserves.
Mark has provided learning Videos through you tube to the Freespirit Martial Arts members whilst the dojo is closed due to COVID19. He has recorded and uploaded these in his own time and continued to offer lesson plans. Mark has completed live Classes through Zoom meetings where his students can take part at home to ensure our progression is not delayed due to the closure. For this he deserves a MY HERO nomination
Lucy is amazing and has been juggling working as a paediatric neurological nurse in a London hospital through these difficult times whilst managing the home and looking after her 2 year old son, Toby. This has included tough night shifts and staying in hospital accomodation away from her family. She is an absolute inspiration and is so brave – I’m so thankful to her and all NHS staff for continuing to put their lives at risk in order to help save others.
Craig had the unfortunate task of furloughing 18 out his his team of twenty cleaners.
Since this time he has made full contact with all the team on a regular basis to keep them fully informed of the fluid situation.
As a manager he has been a great help to me as I am the only cleaner left in a shopping centre of around 1,000,000 square feet. he has managed to proactively go back to his grass roots and help me keep the centre clean, and ensure that the security officers and retailers that are still operating are safe whilst working.
While still keeping the wider team informed and engaged, so that we do not lose any of our team
A true hero, and role model for us all

Gary has been working hard here at Brent Cross Shopping Centre keeping the external service yards clear at the back of our essential supermarkets that have remained open to provide food to the public during the Coronavirus outbreak.

Thomas is a waste operative at Silverburn Shopping Centre in Glasgow. It is a very big site and he is one of only 4 ABM Facility Services staff remaining on site.
Staff at BREBUR LTD have spent the last 2 weeks working around the clock at the new nightingale hospital in Harrogate.
Staff at the company turned out on a Sunday with around 12 hours notice to start the project by building the partitions which form the hospital bays and other essential areas within the hospital.
Every one of the staff asked to attend did so despite the current climate of uncertainty and the risks associated with travel and attending work.
The construction industry has recently been criticised in the press due to a minority of sites not following social distancing guidance but it is rare that the people that build our schools, hospitals, infrastructure etc are given the credit they deserve.
For this reason I would like to nominate all staff at BREBUR LTD for this award as I believe it is truly deserved.

Hello, my name is Jeong-hee Park, and I work in the Environment Division of Bucheon City council of Gyeonggi-do, South Korea.
First of all, among these difficult times due to the Covid-19, I would like to send gratitude to council civil servants of Bucheon City as a MY HERO campaign including the Mayor of Bucheon city, Chang Duck Cheon, of their great devotion.
In Bucheon City, the first confirmed case of Covid-19 took place on 1st February 2020, and since then this city has established Disasters and Safety Countermeasures, and has been conducting 24-hour emergency public health strategies for the 780,000 citizens.
In order for social and facility prevention, all our colleagues had to make strategies and communicate with hospitals in our region. I would like to send a big thank you and honor to each and every colleague and for their family members’ support and service for the community amid this pandemic disaster.
1. Transparent information disclosure in all communities.
Covid-19 exclusive notice board was opened on Bucheon city council website to inform and update, daily, number of matters concerning: number tested for Covid-19, confirmed cases, those treated and recovered, number in strict quarantine, disinfection, and guidance for the citizens where support can be attained from.
Furthermore, the Mayor of Bucheon City has been reporting current updates on the social media and has been found favourable.
2. Warm considerations for those in self-isolation.
Daily essentials such as food and necessities are delivered to the quarantined individual and is contacted one by one, by their responsible council servant, three times a day to ask how they feel and if they have any symptoms or inconveniences.
3. Encouragement of social distancing.
All festivals, conference meetings and places where many people gather have been continued via online, and through wearing masks and location of hand sanitisers has been put to minimize the outbreak.
We are working for the citizens with brave hearts, that overpowers our honor as the Mayor of Bucheon City and as council civil servants of this city.
In these reasons I would like to appeal to your campaign to encourage to us each other.
We will indeed overcome this pandemic together soon I pray.

My wonderful husband has been a Support Worker with the NHS for over 25 years.Last year he had to cope with the devastating news that I have terminal cancer.After caring for me following brain tumour surgery he returned to his hospital to care for his patients some of whom have been infected with Covid 19.He has remained utterly professional and caring in his role whilst ensuring that as a shielded person I remain safe.He is one of the most caring people I have ever known and he deserves recognition for his strength,commitment and love.He is a fantastic Support Worker.I had the privilege of working with him when we first met initially working with People with Learning difficulties and now he works on the ward with adults with head and brain injuries.Our daughter and 2 sons have a fantastic role model in such a dedicated and caring man and I have a wonderful husband whom I would so love to be honoured by you.
As a key worker I commute to work using my Electric bike, which I leave at the local train station. last week my wheel was stolen from my bike, and I could not find any shop that was open to replace my stolen wheel. After trying dozens of places I stumbled upon this amazing social enterprise business that was trading throughout this pandemic- (The Bikes College Leeds)
I called them up to see if they could help me to source a new wheel for my bicycle. David the owner invited me to the unit to see if he could help. Once there I gave him my exact specifications, and he did not have one in stock, however to my delight he offered to order me a brand new complete wheel, and in the interim he made me a wheel from scratch with what he had in his stores so that I could at least rescue my bike, and continue to work- all at no charge. then two days later he called me to let me know my new wheel had arrived. the whole service from the whole team was amazing and the price was half of what I would have expected to pay for this kind of wheel – amazing team and a real gem hidden outside the city centre in Leeds – social enterprises like this deserve to be recognised, especially as they are serving the community like this – thanks a bunch guys
Stephanie and Louise normally organise events for disabled young people, careers and siblings. However, because of the lockdown they have volunteered to deliver meals on wheels to the elderly. They are also preparing meals for some of the people who are not included on the shielding list. This means they can keep a discrete eye on the most at risk. During their ‘spare time’ they are keeping the Cheshire Buddies allotment dug over and ready for planting when the time is right.
They’re working tirelessly, they really do deserve a medal.
I am nominating Tumursukh Jal, who is the Director of Ulaan Taiga National Park in Northern Mongolia, which borders with Siberian Taiga. Tumursukh has been working in conservation for more than 33 years. He was born and raised in a small town in the Darhad Valley. In 1987 after he graduated college, he worked as a researcher, biologist, and Director of “Khuvsgul Lake” National Park for over 20 years.
In the early 2000’s the discovery of significant amounts of gold and jade in the mountains surrounding the Darhad Valley kicked off a mining boom that threatened wildlife and the wilderness of Darhad Valley. Concerned about clean water, the health of wildlife, and the safety of their families, the valley people called Tumursukh to his home due to environmental situations that were threatening the people and the environment of the valley. Jal and valley people together fought for the protection of their home and created the Ulaan Taiga National Park. Tumursukh has been the director of the Ulaan Taiga National Park since it was established in 2012.
Ulaan Taiga National Park covers over 3.7 million acres, an area that is four times bigger than California’s Yosemite National Park, which has around 800 full-time employees, whereas Jal manages only 34 staff members total in Ulaan Taiga. It’s very challenging to Tumursukh and his rangers to patrol such a massive landscape with such a small number of staff, but due to Tumursukh’s dedication and leadership, Darhad Valley is blooming.
Throughout these years, Tumurskh covered 880,000km [547,000 miles] by car, 168,000km [104,400 miles] on horseback, 32,000km [20,000 miles] on foot, 5,600km [3,500 miles] on his skates, 750km [470 miles] on a reindeer and spent 5,400 days in the wilderness patrolling the parks.
We all are very proud of what he is doing for the next generation. He is a truly real environmentalist and our hero.
For guiding me through a period of anxiety and depression. She has taken time to reassure me and enable me to recover following the recent loss of three family members.
Paula has worked for the NHS for over 30 years as a nurse,midwife and presently as a children’s nurse in the community. Many of our friends have often said “every one should have a Paula”.She is always prepared to go the extra mile for patients, family friends and colleague’s. We are enormously proud of our very own Hero.
This carer made my mother’s stay at Heartly Green Intermediate Care home in Irlam, so pleasant. My Mum spent nearly a year there after breaking her leg 3 times, only home for 6 days in the year. Shannon, was bright, bubbly and cheerful, spent a lot of time talking to my mum, which made her day pass quickly. I had been unable to see her for 3 weeks due to Lockdown, but I know Shannon and her colleagues made that so much better. Unfotunately she passed away recently.
Sarah Mutunga who works at Charlotte House Isleworth has supported Kit Perkins my mother in law who has Alhiemzers as if she were a member of her own family. She cares for Kit on a one to one basis and has supported her through many difficult periods but particularly during lockdown she has made a terrible time bearable by us knowing she is there to support Kit and us.
I would like to nominate all the staff at Kids Gone Wild for their dedication to the schools and children in the community, particularly throughout the Covid-19 crisis. They have continued to deliver environmental and outdoor fun sessions to the children of keyworkers within the hub schools throughout West Lothian. They have continued to create a sense of fun and normality while looking out for environmental issues in an unsettled time,including facilitating the planting project of 300 trees with the school children.
Nicola has been a hero to me and my husband during Covid-19 we cant get out as we are both self isolating due to my husband illiness . A few times a week not only does she bring shopping for us, she happily gets our neighbours food and always with a smile and often leaves us a bar of chocolate to cheer us up and to top of all this she makes weekly phone calls to see how we are coping . A true hero to us and all the other people she shops for.

Well Done Leon
I would like to nominate my husband, Dhayananda.
Dhayananda is a 64-year old Senior staff nurse, with a history of ill health including but not limited to: A triple heart bypass, type 2 diabetes, gall bladder removal and a number of stent procedures.
Despite this, Dhayananda chose not to retire at the permitted age of 60. He has continued to serve the public and is currently working on the frontlines of the covid-19 pandemic – as an A&E triage nurse at North Middlesex hospital.
He has a passion and love for his work and serving others; when not working, he has also now become a teacher for his young grandchildren during the lockdown. He’s an inspiration and his courage and determination make him my hero. Thank you.
I would like to nominate my niece, Jenna Thondee who works as a pharmacist at Royal Free University Hospital.
She is incredibly diligent and determined, completing a range of studies over last decade so that she can serve her patients as best as possible. During the covid-19 pandemic, she is working on the frontlines in the ICU department.
We are so proud of her and would like you to recognise her courage and service at the young age of 28. She will continue to be an asset to the NHS and our nation as a whole.
Working hard throughout this coronavirus outbreak while also being pregnant, until she was unable to work in the recent weeks, still always checking on people in the team to make sure there all doing ok even though she can’t be there to help us
Hannah is a single mum who works full time for the nhs as a surgical nursing assistant , as times have been so hard on the ward for the past 6 weeks her and Finley’s dad decided it would be best for him to stay with dad full time due to Hannah being worried she will bring the virus home. She only gets to see littleman on FaceTime when she is not working every hour at the moment covering sickness and staff shortness around the hospital! She is doing an amazing job and can’t wait for a huge cuddle of her son. She is also making a covid 19 memory box for Finley so when this is all over her and Finley can sit and look threw everything she has done etc and to look back in years to come! Absolute hero this girl is and still smiles and gives 100% amazing patient care to all of her poorly patients.
Katherin is the energy café manager for CREW Energy.
Before the UK lockdown began, she was running CREW energy advice cafés in community buildings throughout south-west London, offering face-to-face support to those at risk of fuel poverty on handling debt, applying for discounts and grants, and adopting energy saving behaviours.
Katherin has spent the last few weeks coordinating a team, creating posters and energy advice leaflets, and training energy advisors over Zoom. All so we can offer a telephone service to support vulnerable people in our community with advice and support on paying their bills and topping up prepaid meters in self-isolation. She has so far built up a team of volunteers who can offer over-the-phone support from their homes in London, and other countries throughout Europe, to help people in English, Spanish, French, Italian and Polish when they need us most.
COVID-19 has forced us all to spend more time at home, using more energy and spending more money on our bills – sometimes on a reduced income. Katherin is working tirelessly to ensure everyone can access the help they need to combat this.
Elaine is one of our Directors of Nursing And she has helped oversee Silver Control from the start of the COVID pandemic. She has remained calm and faced every challenge thrown at her. She has supported every staff member and made them feel listened to. Elaine has had to deal with the whole trust and oversee distribution of staff, PPE, daily updates and government guidelines. I feel we have been well led and couldn’t have asked for a better leader
Sharon changed roles and went back to work in ITU to help with the pandemic, after being away from ITU for 9 years. It was the most scary place to work in the present climate.
Myself and her dad are very proud of her and all her efforts of collecting toiletries for patients in hospital with no visitors at the moment too.
ALWAYS BRINGING A SMILE TO THE DEPT …CHEERING UP THE WORKFORCE. ALWAYS GOING THE EXTRA MILE WITH WEEKEND FILING. A TRUE INSPIRATION.
MAJOR TOM WE SALUTE YOU!
This man has been helping his neighbours who are isolating or shielding by sending them notes asking if they need anything. He is then collecting their shopping lists and delivering their groceries at their doorsteps. He does so much for everyone and deserves a massive appreciation.
David’s video’s for different sections of the NHS have been invaluable in keeping staff informed about Coronavirus, the necessary PPE required, the necessary safety requirements for each area of work etc. He’s done a fantastic job at information sharing, advising and offering appropriate reassurance to every section of the NHS. Hats off to him.
Farhan Wilyat Butt is from Lahore, Pakistan. The 2019-20 Coronavirus Pandemic was confirmed to have reached Pakistan in February 2020. As of 7th April 2020, the number of confirmed cases in the country is over 4000, with 429 recoveries and 54 deaths. The government authorities imposed lockdown to check the spread of COVID-19 in March 2020 and daily wage workers have been badly divested by the crisis.
Though lockdown is extremely necessary to control the outbreak, daily wage workers were facing hunger and financial constraints and many daily wagers had not earned even a single rupee in more than three weeks, and the Ministry of Planning estimated that 12.3 million to 18.5 million people will become jobless due to pandemic. Farhan decided to commence distribution of free rations to the families of jobless and deserving people.
He started collecting donations from the general public and commenced distribution of free rations as a lockdown relief. He scheduled a plan for distribution of ration bags (consisting of flour, cooking oil, beans, rice, sugar, salt, vegetables etc.) to deserving families in Lahore (Punjab), Karachi (Sindh), Tharparkar (Sindh), Chaman (Balochistan) and Peshawar (Khyber Pakhtunkhwa).
This ration relief project is completely based on public donations and free services of volunteers. The project was quite risky as he had to travel to different areas and locations for ration distribution and he could also get infected.
Chris is in the British Army, he has been working through the lockdown and is my hero. The Army dont seem to get much recognition and they deserve it. Especially Chris.
My mam sharon works as a nurse giving chemotherapy she gies to work every day looking after patients. I am high risk so she looks after me at home and patients at work. Proud of her.

I would like to nominate my little sister Ranjit Kaur. She is a healthcare professional that works in the busy maternity ward of Bradford Royal Infirmary (BRI). She has been working very hard during covid 19 period and personally dealt with patients that have tested positive. She has risen to the challenge and recently tested negative which was a huge relief to us all.
I love my sister with all my heart and despite this busy time for key workers she has still found the time to check up on family. She phones me regularly and took the time to wish my first grandson a happy 1st birthday. I really want her to be recognised amongst the countless others in the NHS and social care as well as keyworkers helping to keep our supermarket shelves stacked and our bins emptied. From lorry drivers to cleaners. My sister Ranjit Kaur is a one in a million hero for me and my family. Love you

Amy is my daughter and works as a sister on ward 12 at NSECH.
Amy has two sons aged 3 and 4 and struggles with worry about passing this awful virus onto them. She has been dedicated to helping both staff and patients on the ward and has often been in tears about the way this dreadful virus has affected so many people both old and young. Amy has certainly made me proud, but so have all her other colleagues on Ward 12. It is managed by Claire Robinson who supports all her staff, not just at this awful time but at all times.
The good in all people around us has been overwhelming.
Just before lock down Lucy Brook took a temporary post as ward manager. To relive for maternity leave.
She took the post in a new ambulatory care unit at Cramlington hospital Nsech.
She has organised staff to work on her unit move staff to Wanspeck hospital so we’re possible surgical operations could be done.
Kept the ambulatory care staff unit running looking after staff isolation fur 12 weeks . And because of the virus she hasn’t been able to go home to Yorkshire and see her mum.
Well done Lucy Brook
For her care and compassion for all her patients. Her tireless efforts during this time supporting her team and the hospital The Royal Free with the care they are giving to all patients and there families during theses times. She never complains about her work and feels it is an honour to do the job she does 100%
Anne is our ward manager and has always been a great and supportive leader, during my time working on her team and especially, during the current Covid19 pandemic.
I know that if I have any concerns Anne is ready to listen and help resolve any problems or dilemmas I have at work.
I am proud to be a member of Anne’s team at Ward 2 Hexham General Hospital.
Great leadership qualities makes me to following it’s not me alone following more than anyone else because of his helping tendency to be a leader alone. great personality with special and unique characteristics to make someone to become a leader rather than to be a slave is his unique characteristics by virtue. He is my boss and leadership for ever.
Being a nurse all her life working for the NHS and a brilliant sister supporting staff on her ward as well as an amazing mother.
She is also always trying to save the environment at work and a keen environmentalist and would love a tree in her honour.
My Consultant colleague has taken on the rota challenges of providing anaesthetic /intensive care Consultant cover during the pandemic. Due to her intelligent and innovative thinking both acute hospitals are well stocked with a robust Consultant and junior team. In addition she takes into account the needs of all the individuals and demonstrates empathy and care.
This Team is part of the Covid 19 epidemic assessment team, it was joined together with the Rapid Access Team to form part of the care and support in the Halton and surrounding areas. This Team supports hospital discharges from our two main hospitals in the area. Warrington and Halton. It provides minor adaptations, and on going support in the community. Without this team people would remain in hospital longer than needed.
For the care and support given to all clients in the unprecedented times and for support for the families who are unable to visit. Also for keeping up the good Team Moral in this unprecedented time well done to each and everyone of you. Unsung Hero’s.
This Team consists of very valuable Carers who provide care and support to the elderly and vulnerable patients who are needing care after discharge from hospital in their own home to enable them to reach back to their potential. Without these carers, many of the elderly would not see anyone for days on end. So the comfort and support these cares give is making a difference to their every day lives. These are the unsung Hero’s who are forgotten.
A nurse who goes into any situation to serve patient’s. She will take in leadership wherever she goes to promote the highest of care for patients. Through her experience of delivering education she advocates practices which are supported by science and research which she cascades through teams. An absolute role model who helps shapes safer care within the NHS. Your incredible!
My daughter belinda has always wanted to be a nurse. Little did she know she would qualify as the world is taken over by covid 19. Belinda was straight into ICU within 2
Weeks of qualifying. Unfortunately she contracted the virus and her fiancée did too,
We’re insure if poppy her 21 month old daughter did. Thankfully they are all well now and belinda is back to work in ICU.
Stacey who is a nurse practitioner who has dedicated her time to help others to fight on the front line of the NHS. Staying away from her home and family including her 3 young children, not only to you and your family but to protect her own. We are so incredibly proud of you for all you do. Keep smiling and doing what you do best.
She is brave, courageous and incredibly strong helping not only the NHS but to support others in need, providing support for her local community and others who are left vulnerable during these unprecedented times.
This Team was recently thrown into the front line with two other Teams, to cover the Covid 19 Pandemic Emergency in the Northumberland area. They are all brave and courageous individuals who have adapted and taken on the challenge to face adversity and they have come back stronger than ever. You deserve all the recognition and gratitude given as you are all heroes! Your duties were to the people of Northumberland that were admitted to hospital from the community, needing care and medical support. Without this Team’s support one of the medical wards would have not been able to run and function to care for very unwell patients with Covid-19, you not only cared for these patients but for their families and communities. I am very proud to be part of this Team and take great pride in the service we as a Team provide, keep up the hard work.
They are doing meals and food deliverys in the communities in there own time to old and vulnerable people and also people with familys they struggle to feed it is a volunteer association that does loads for community through this pandemic and beyond pandemic they run loads of activities all year round they deserve an award
My Daughter has only been a qualified nurse since March 2020 and her job is a Staff Nurse in Tameside General Hospital A&E department , but since the pandemic started she is now working in the Critical Care Unit where the patients are on respirators , she was also ill with suspected Covid 19, so had to isolate , but is ok now and she was eager to get back to work to help her patients , and is doing 4 x 13 hour night shifts in all that PPE , her dedication makes myself and the rest of the Family so Proud, putting her life at risk every shift , so i think she deserves a mention thankyou
My younger sister is my hero, because she’s been through so much yet despite this, has grown into such a lovely, caring young woman who will go out of her way to help anyone. We lost our mum a few years ago, when she was in college about to take her exams, and we encouraged her to carry on going and she did, obtaining distinctions. Now, a few years later, she went down the path of becoming a nurse and obtained a first in her nursing degree, despite helping to care for our dad who recently underwent heart surgery. She was offered a job a our local hospital and chose to start working straight away after finishing university, and that just happened to be in March, just before all this Coronavirus situation. She started in A&E and was soon redeployed to Critical Care to help look after many patients, including those with Covid-19. How she keeps her head so straight on her shoulders and goes through so much day in, day out is beyond me. She’s a true credit to all of our family and friends, as well as to those who need her care in the hospital. We’re all so proud of her, and of the inspirational woman she has become.
“Education and Training: The Impact in Providing Safe Surgery and Embracing Teamwork During Pandemic”
We come to the point that we reflect and realised that life is so precious. We need to appreciate or value what healthcare workers are contributing to the society. My close friend worked as a Clinical Nurse Practice Educator and it’s his core responsibilities to ensure that he is providing high standards of holistic patient’s care at all times. His enduring commitment towards leadership, education and training has had positive impact in improving and sustaining best practice in healthcare during the current global pandemic. He has been required to work closely with different departments to achieve the common goal of delivering quality patient care in adherence to hospital policies, procedures and guidelines. His entire management perioperative team had organised a well structured training programme for some staff to be redeployed in other other areas within the hospital setting and Florence Nightingale Hospital to provide help to people who had contracted Coronavirus (Covid-19). Providing education and training to operating staff members in a short period of time is fundamentally important ensuring that they are properly trained receiving enough support during this difficult time. I believe that his passion, commitment and dedication in providing education and training to all his fellow clinicians is an achievement in saving lives of vulnerable sick people and protecting others. Rex’s work ethos is phenomenal as he doesn’t take success only for himself but recognising the success of the entire team. His entire perioperative team has immensely worked longer hours looking after patients going for surgery and still accommodating other vulnerable patients regardless of what pre existing health conditions they may have, treating every patients with compassion and care. His active involvement in Infection prevention and control within his department is crucial during this global pandemic. Nursing is his vocation and dream to provide holistic approach. Coming to United Kingdom has given him an opportunity to share his clinical expertise in the field of nursing and was able to impart and share his knowledge to other fellow clinicians. He always valued the essence of good team working. All his fellow healthcare workers are tirelessly working really hard from the hospital ensuring that they have provided the best care to all there patients while upholding there duties and responsibilities. I’m so proud of there enduring commitment in looking after patients within the hospital setting. All healthcare workers deserved recognition in every aspect of their career as they put there lives at the frontline to save and protect people.
Well done to his entire team in providing high standards of care and continue saving lives.
The person I am nominating is my G.P. who has looked after me for over 20 years. I cannot speak highly enough of the care I have received from my doctor who has gone out of her way beyond the normal duties to care for me especially during the current covid-19 lockdown period where my mental health plummeted, even spending over an hour on the phone listening and talking me out of taking my own life. When I was at my worst she called every day and even now she calls every week to see how I am doing. On one occasion I was struggling to get out of the house to top up my electric meter so she when she finished work she called & offered to pick me up and take me to get the electric. When my sister moved into the area I recommended Dr.Roberts to her & now my sister won’t see anyone else. This doctor truly deserves recognition for her services and care given to her patients.
Kerry is a hard working Nurse practitioner, mum of 2 beautiful boys as well as ‘mother’ to the ‘whole team’ of practitioners at work. She is always there to provide motivation with a ‘rousing speech’ or some delicious home made baking. Keep it up Kerry ( work mum) xxx
Michelle works as a carer in the community and is an amazing mother to her 3 girls. She is one of the most caring people that I know. She is always willing to help people before herself. She always has a smile for everyone she meets. I am so proud that she is my niece.
During the coronavirus pandemic, the Cambridgeshire Constabulary Well-being Network have set up a weekly blog, a daily on call service to support colleagues with their concerns about covid-19 (as well as any other issues that may be exacerbated by anxiety, fear or otherwise) as well as sourcing help guides and materials/ideas to share. The network is made up of police staff, volunteers, uniformed officers and detectives; of whom all are fully committed to supporting their colleagues and doing so on top of their day jobs.
They consistently go above and beyond to try and come up with ideas to support their colleagues, not only during this unprecedented time. The network has proved a lifeline to many.
Sarra is an inspirational person, she is always positive and willing to help others. Sarra is an amazing nurse and mother to her favourite child Luna, as well as all of her other kids. A tree in her honour is a fitting tribute to Sarra as she is strong, tough and always there.
Margaret is an amazing NHS Intensive care nurse who gives everything to her job. Even with an autoimmune disease and managing her 2 children alone, she has worked on through the covid pandemic tirelessly. She always puts people before herself.
A person with a visionary idea in networking citizens all around the world for a noble cause in Energy conservation. Lots of effects are continuously put in in creating awareness campaigns through social media even during this lockdown clearly visualise his tireless work arise round of applause. The seed is to be sowed in younger minds has driven the organisation IGEN to give Young Innovation Arme, to be a contributor in younger minds rather than a receptor for ever.
Oliver Sterno is the community leader at Plastic Free Eastbourne and works tirelessly to improve our town and its local parks and beaches. He also encourages local businesses to reduce their use of single use plastics. We have just gained Surfers Against Sewage plastic free award due to his hard work.
We are a small rural General Intensive Care unit with funding for 9 level 3 beds. Following the discovery of COVID-19 and its likely impact on our unit, our management team have worked extremely hard to prepare us for an unprecedented number of admissions. They have worked tirelessly to facilitate the expansion of our unit, to train non-ITU staff to assist us and prepared us as a team to cope both mentally and physically for the trying times ahead. The excellent leadership they have shown is reassuring in these uncertain times, I hope that they all know how much it is appreciated.
Shelley is a Ward Sister working at St Michaels Hospital in Hayle. The hospital has had to change its services completly, from elective orthopaedics to a trauma centre running a limb injuries unit and two working trauma wards. Shelley has worked so hard to make sure her staff and patients are safe and cared for during this change, while not only completing her management role, but also working out on the wards. Shelley is an incredible manager who has earnt the respect of all the staff that work with her, and will go above and beyond to ensure the hospital is a safe place for all who are there. The RCHT is lucky to have such a hard working, compassionate and loyal employee.
Daniel has worked tirelessly for the community for many years, serving on the Parish Council and running Pevensey Community Support. During the crisis he made sure the isolated in the village had supplies, personally shopping for many different households. He has always worked to make sure vulnerable people have the support they need and for nothing in return, it would be great to see him thanked properly.
Lee has been an absolute rock to me personally and the whole theatre department.
Even when he is swamped with important managerial work, he always makes the time to talk, support and check in with his staff.
He is an amazing friend as well as an amazing colleague.
Kirstie and I met in 1994 (may have been earlier) when working on the Cardiology Wards at RD&E Hospital, Exeter. She soon became one of my best friends and was supportive, kind, funny and extremely loyal.
She moved away to Cambridge and worked in Papworth and they soon realised her worth and she became one of the sisters there. She now works in Cardiac Rehab which she adores but has been redeployed on the critical care unit with COVID patients. She has continued to be the most professional, caring nurse you could ever wish to meet and does all this whilst being a wife, mother to teenage twin boys and no doubt caring for her neighbours at the same time. It is such a difficult time and she lives hundreds of miles away from her parents, sister and Father-in law. (and from me!) I miss her so much and cannot imagine what it is like for her at the moment. Working in an unfamiliar environment without your usual team work mates and not to be able to meet up with friends, not to go to the gym to work off stress and not be able to have a cry and hug with others must be awful. BUT she is getting through all of this like the resilient strong person she is. She deserves to be recognised so much for not necessarily being a “hero” but for being the incredible woman she is.
I would like to nominate the fantastic team at The Dolphin Pre School and Nursery. They have been a massive support to all of the Key workers with children that attend their establishment. They have ensured the safety and well-being of all of the children, whilst always providing reassurance and support for parents whose children have continued to attend throughout lockdown. In addition to remaining open to children of key workers, The Dolphin staff have kept communication open to those with those children who have remained at home.
We can’t thank you enough – you are all simply wonderful. You have enabled us to continue to do our own work so that we can help others. We have always felt confident about the safety of our children because we know how much you care about and love them. Thank you!
A mother a health care assistant a hero to all and those that are around Anna she is always positive even at the darkest of times making everything easier to bare in these times of need for compassion and understanding! saving lives and caring for them are just a few quality’s that make Anna a HERO like all the others that are selfless in there approach to care in these times !!
Sheena AKA Wonder Woman has completely changed our Surgical Division with her passion, support and superb patient centred care.
From a Nursing point of view I feel she has empowered the Surgical Nurses by helping them improve their clinical knowledge and skills.
She has encouraged them to have a voice and have the confidence to speak up for patients and the Nursing Teams.
She recognises and understands where improvements are needed and supports the Nurses to be change agents.
When Sheena is on the wards we feel reassured that the patients are receiving exceptional care and she encourages us to do the same.
She will always be my hero!…. I have lost count haw many times she has saved the day for me and my team now!
I wish to nominate my partner Graham Thorne who worked in the maintenance department at Bedford Hospital. He was hardworking, liked by everyone and nothing was ever too much trouble. He sadly contracted covid-19 while doing the job he loved and despite all the efforts of the staff on ICU in Bedford Hospital he lost his fight after 14 days at the age of 58. A tree planted in his name would be a fitting memorial and tribute to him.
Christina has been amazing in the community I live in. She set up a community help/support group to make sure that all of the roads were covered for people self isolating and vulnerable. She frequently updates the volunteers by email and the Facebook page about what is going on re prescription collections and people returning to work etc. She has organised all of this off her own back and in her own time… A real hero in my eyes!
Dear The Green Organisation,
I’d like to nominate my hero. She is Irina, my sister-in-law. I’ll give you some details:
She came 12 years ago from Romania and worked initially in care homes then as a fully registered nurse. She has 2 little children at home and also lives with her elderly mother who is a vulnerable person. I also work in the NHS but not all of us are front line. That’s why I do recognise her as being one of the true heroes.
Many thanks for having this initiative during these challenging times.
Adrian, NHS worker in Birmingham
Simon has been a real local hero spreading sunshine and happiness every single day to local residents! He has been delivering birthday cakes free of charge in the town…all done socially distanced and blasting out birthday music from his vehicle at the same time so the whole road knows its someone’s birthday and many people go out to see and wave! Everyone loves receiving them and hearing the music knowing he is on his way to make someone’s day special! A truly kind and generous man.
Many of us throughout the hospital have either worked alongside or know Jane. She is a bright character, once met never forgotten. She is a fountain of knowledge that is eager to keep learning and training to a high standard throughout the hospital.
She is a rock of support to all the members of her team. It doesn’t matter the situation she has your back. She has put together the nightingale Exeter hospital training package along with her fellow colleagues. Even came back to work after her Aussie trip was cancelled. She wanted to be there to support all her colleagues through the Covid-19 Pandemic, this is the type of person she is. I think if she could whip up a spell that would give her a house elf as her assistant; she would still be pulling our work apart. (haha)
Jane is a passionate and professional person, no matter what the situation Jane finds the right solution to solve the problem. She oozes compassion to every patient or colleagues she is with. Her patient care is next to none. She is always there for reassurance and is approachable anytime of the day. She makes you feel like you are part of the family, we will never be able to thank her enough for everything she has done as our matron. We are proud of her and hopefully see her progress further in her career.
I can thank My Hero more. Every day he wakes up with a bright smile on his face to applause the new day that has arrived, with all the opportunities that the day brings in.
He is always there to help me, no matter how busy he is and always make me his priority.
I love him so much even if sometimes I get too grumpy to show to him.
He is my hero as he is always there for me, ready to support me and nourish me.
He is an amazing cook too :).
I want to spend my life with my hero
She is an amazing soul who always want to help people, even though she is preoccupied with 3 children at home, she has managed to dedicate 2 days of every week to work in an adult care home, with all the scary news circulating about the rate of infection in the care homes, she did for one minute think of not going to work, she always look forward to go to work and comes home with a smile, she has done such an amazing job during this pandemic for the care home and am proud of her and I am proud to nominate her.
Before the Coronavirus outbreak Donna was the sister in Outpatients in Princess Alexandra hospital in Harlow. She has now spent over 35 years nursing in the NHS,
When Donna was requested to be re-deployed onto a Covid ward, she never complained about the switch and just got on with it.
Margaret Dack works in a care home, she works all the hours to look after the elderly, she doesn’t fuss when asked to come in on our days off and she always puts people first before herself. She is a kind, caring carer and loving nanna too.
Allan was a Independent borough and Town councillor for Halewood, who fought for many years to protect our green spaces even fighting for green flag status and halewood duck pond were it still stands today unfortunately Allan lost his life in December 2019, and a permanent tree named after him would be amazing
We are nominating Narantsetseg Sambuu, the most hardworking, generous, and greenest (eco-friendly) woman. The reason why we are nominating her is because of
1. She cares about nature just like her children: She and her teams are protecting an environment through tourism, planting trees, protecting a wild animal, and using eco-friendly technologies to protect mother earth for the next generations.
2. Every small and big environmental activity completed through Naraa’s participation.
She is our communities’s heart: Naraa is the most generous woman in our communities who welcomes even strangers and us. She treats everyone just like her own children.
3. We want to say THANK YOU, NARAA, for your unconditional love and care for our nature and us.

Our neighbour, Jill Smith, has been and continues to be an absolute angel during the coronavirus lockdown. She volunteered to do any shopping we need at least twice a week. She also takes repeat prescriptions to our local surgery and collects our medication from the chemist on a regular basis. My wife and I know, as we are both in the vulnerable age/health category, that we are so blessed to have such a wonderful person as our neighbour.
I would like to nominate my Sister Dawn for the My Hero Award. My Sister is very hard working and always puts others before herself. She is a Support worker and who works with adults who have Learning Difficulties, Physical needs and Autism. She also has another job, which she juggles alongside her Support Worker post. Most days she will go to work early and leave late, in order to get all of her duties completed. She goes above and beyond her job role as she actually cares for the individuals she supports.
As well as working very hard, she has other caring duties, as she has a sick relatives that she is in constant contact with. She attends all medical appointments which can be situated all over London. She manages to fit this all in amongst all her other duties.
My Sister hardly ever complains or takes a break for herself. She puts all other including me and my children before herself and genuinely wants to see others happy, which I know makes her happy. Recently my Sister came from work and helped me to fill in two job application forms. She also refunded me back for a sofa bed that I purchased because she did not want me to have less money. I can call her Morning, Noon or Night and she will always do her best to help me and others.
For these reasons and many more I would like to nominate my Sister.
This is a Intermediate Care Home, based in the Widnes Area Cheshire. During this unforeseen period, these carers have been dedicated and caring through out this time. They have provided not only care to each and every one of the elderly residents, who have not been able to see their loved ones, so as you can imagine it has been very upsetting for them. Not only have these carers been caring for them, but they have also been their only friendly face not only dealing with the Covid 19 but also having to leave their own family. So I would like to nominate each and every one of the Carers for their dedication and commitment.
Ryan is a psychiatric nurse at the A&E ,St.Thomas’ hospital, London. He has been working as many shifts as allowed by the hospital, especially during the Coronavirus. We have worried about him but understand how important his work is, especially during this period.
Our neighbour, Jill, has been an absolute angel during the coronavirus lockdown. She has regularly taken prescriptions to the surgery, collected medication and done our food shopping every two or three days and continues to do so. She has made life so much easier for us, as my wife and I are both in the vulnerable category.
Yvonne has over 30 years NHS nursing experience. She retired only last November, but answered the call to return to the NHS to assist as necessary in her former field of work during this very difficult time of dealing with the Covid 19 Pandemic.
I had been suffering with jaw ache since the start of the lockdown and obviously could not get an appointment to see the dentist. I spoke to David, having not received any relief from a course of antibiotics. He suggested that I might need to be fitted with a mouth guard once the lockdown is lifted, but in the meantime said I would need to be prescribed strong painkillers by my GP.
The GP practice required authorisation from the dentist, but the dental practice was unable to get the fax machine to work. Rather than me not have the medication I needed, unbeknown to me, David cycled to my GP practice in the next town with the appropriate authorisation. I only found out when the receptionist at the GP practice said she could “remember this one because the dentist had cycled over with the authorisation”.
This act, to ensure I could receive my medication in a timely manner, took me completely by surprise and was above and beyond the call of duty. Talk about thinking outside the box and providing a patient-centred service. I am so grateful and would like to say a big thank you to David. He is a true hero.
Raymond was a London Cab driver still working during the pandemic to get people around London safely.
He was loved by everyone he met, especially by his family in Suffolk!
Ray sadly contracted Covid-19 and passed away on the 15th May 2020.
He was a hero to us in many ways and not only for being a Key Worker at such a difficult time, still spreading his joy and happiness.
An award in his memory would mean so much!
I am nominating Amy because of her hard work and dedication to treating patients infected with the Coronavirus, ensuring they get the very best chance to recover. She is an RN in an ICU of a hospital that was only treating patients with COVID-19 during the peak of the pandemic. Amy has been a nurse for 25 years and the condition of the patients she has been treating during this time is unprecedented. Even though Amy is a strong person, the circumstances surrounding the illnesses of those stricken by the Coronavirus has taken a toll on her mentally. Amy is married to a firefighter who is also working the front line and they have two teenage boys. Although she always puts them first, she also sees that her role in defeating this virus is crucial to the safety of her family, friends and everyone in the world.
She has been amazing as this time as a ward manager despite being in lockdown as a vulnerable person. At the same time she has been doing home schooling for her kids yet managing to be supportive to all the team who work for her.
Madeline has been a HCA (health care assistant) for ten years, and has always been a bright and energetic contributor to our team. During the Covid 19 crisis Madeline chose to work on the front line, and through out maintained her bright, energetic and personality.
The reason I have chosen to nominate Madeline, is that she has been an inspiration to other more experienced NHS staff…
I have found her courage, positive attitude and infectious enthusiasm and positivity truely inspirational.
I like to nominate my colleague Kunjukrishnan Senith Kumar which is currently employed by Royal Sussex County Hospital Brighton Sterile Service Department. I praise him for the last 3 months’ continuous effort to support patients indirectly despite his ill health and risk with diabetes. As a dedicated key worker, he showed his extra talents to sterilize surgical instruments of emergency surgeries and concentrated on disinfecting ventilator valves as a priority throughout his work. As it’s short-staffed he utilized his own break times to despatch and deliver all the priority sets and supplementary in the red zone areas with his personal protective equipment.
It’s nice to appreciate and honor him as a valuable member of the NHS for his continuous effort of PREPARING DIFFERENT VALVES FOR VENTILATOR in this pandemic crisis.
As the manager of Somerset Villa I would like to nominate our team.
Our ward is a Rehabilitation service for people with enduring mental health illnesses and during the Covid peak the team faced uncertain times and working within our trust values remaining to be companionate, respectful, team work and been positive. We have managed to ensure that the staff and service users have been safe and maintained a safe working environment with rapid new guidance from our managers making our service users our priority. I think it is important to recognise that all the staff have supported each other during this challenging time to remain positive and forward thinking by keeping safe, and virulent on a daily basis. some member of the team have been redeployed to support other areas which has taken courage during Covid times.
Susan is a mother of three from Shetland, who has worked in Social Care her entire adult life.
Throughout the pandemic she has shown incredible resilience and unwavering support and patience for those around her. Prior to lock-down she was working at the Gilbert Bain Hospital but had been applying for other jobs. During the lock-down she made the brave decision to take a slightly new direction in Social Care and accepted a job as a support worker for adults with learning disabilities in supported accommodation. Starting a new job can be challenging enough, but with the current climate being what it is with social distancing measures to adhere too, there were obviously additional challenging factors to contend with. She faced these head on, whilst also remaining on the hospital bank rota.
On top of this she has checked up on her elderly parents every day, having a catch-up from the car park and bringing them their essentials, as well as doing their weekly shopping.
I would like to add, as her daughter, it has been partly very difficult to live away from her at this time and to see the strain she has been under, worrying about her family, far and near. However, it has also been very inspiring to see her dedication and determination to help everyone around her. She might be a Worrier at hear but she is a Warrior and a champion in character and spirit!
I would like to nominate my Sister because she is a key worker. She has three jobs which she alternates working with people who have special needs. her jobs are very demanding and she woks tirelessly from morning till night.

Our father is also not well and she has been a tower of strength for him and the whole family .
My Sister has no time for herself and sacrifices herself for the sake for the people around her and those that she loves. For these reasons I would like to nominate my Sister for this prestigious award.

Poppy have made sure I have been provided with

My Mum has worked so hard over the Covid 19 period. She has hardly taken a day of and she has done lots of extra hours and she always puts herself last. Her patients are everything to her. She is such a caring person and she loves her job as a mental health nurse. She has also worked on the front line putting her patients first. Also my mum has learnt more on physical health issues over the Covid time to enable her to treat her patients not just for mental health but for physical health to.

Deborah is a mother of 3 and saddled with all the child care issues, yet she has decided to offer herself to work 2 days every week in an Adult care home, administering medication and also taken care of their social issues.
She was scared of contracting the virus and infecting her family at home, but she kept going, and in her own words, she said, “They need our help in this difficult times and if I don’t do it, who should do it and how will I expect someone to do it for me when I am one day old like them” Sister Derbie of Dartford Kent, you are an amazing hero and for that, I love you.
You manage high rise building in the city and your boss asked you to keep going to work throughout the period of the pandemic to enable you to manage life safety types of equipment as fire/smoke systems, although you had your reservation about going to work by train, you didn’t shed your responsibilities, even though the train was the most common place to catch the virus, you continue to go to work by train/tube and sometimes on the bus every day, you are a good person with a good head on your shoulders, you are brave and you are my hero.

My sister Pat Moran is Resident at Cheshire Grange and suffers from a rare illness called Cortico Basal Degeneration. Part of this illness means that she has dementia issues and cannot make herself known to her family and careers easily. Since the lockdown the carers arranged for a what’s app link which means they have been able to share images of Pat together with daily updates on how she is feeling. Pat was 70 years old on 4 April this year and the carers were brilliant and organised a special birthday celebration and copied the family in with some memorable photos of Pat enjoying her big day. We cannot thank or praise Cheshire Grange and in particular Pats carers for their wonderful treatment of Pat and their friendship to Pats’s family at a really difficult time. We will always be in their debt and salute them as incredible caring people. To us each and everyone is a hero.

PROF. NABHIT KAPUR – PLAYING BEST ROLE DURING COVID-19 PANDEMIC:
A global advocate and relentless crusader of promoting mental health, Nabhit Kapur, from India, envisage a world free of mental health stigmas and taboos. Through his exemplary work, indefatigable spirit and passionate endeavours he has been able to bring impactful transformative changes in several parts of the world including the African continent and the Middle East. A PsychoPreneur, author, TEDx speaker and globally decorated ambassador of mental health and peace with numerous recognitions globally. Kapur, is perhaps the youngest psychologist in the contemporary world, and only one from India, leading this remarkable movement to make mental health a household name.
Acclaimed as one of the world’s most influential psychologist by the FAAVM-Canada (a counterpart of Canadian government), Kapur is the founder President of PeacfulMind Foundation (PMF). Based in New Delhi, PeacfulMind Foundation (PMF) is a global organization registered with the United Nations (U.N.) Global Compact. The foundation is present in many countries across the world. Though not many people are listening and understanding the true meaning of mental wellbeing, the young crusader of mental health (as said by daily hunt news 25 April 2020) started many initiatives under the broad umbrella of PMF
GLOBAL YOUTH MENTAL HEALTH FORUM (GYMHF):
A global platform of PMF, also known as “Youth Forum”, which was launched in 2018 with the mission to create “better mindscapes for better tomorrow.” The forum’s focus areas are taking care of youth mental wellbeing with the help of youth activists, NGOs and psychologists at a global level focusing on training of individuals in psychological first aid. The forum platform is both online and offline. Until 2020 March PMF global youth forum has trained more than 12,654 youths globally.
PMF MUNICIPAL CORPORATION CENTER, NEW DELHI:
On the World Mental Health Day 2019, PMF collaborated with the North Municipal Corporation of Delhi for opening a free Stress Management Centre and assisting the workforce and government officers for a stress free work and training them every week in work life balance. The PMF stress management center caters to 33,000+ employees of municipal cooperation and income tax department. All the trainings are under the super vision of Nabhit Kapur.
PMF FIGHT AGAINST COVID-19:
Corona has turned lives upside down in India and led to its own set of psychological challenges that we just aren’t equipped to handle. This uncertainty in case of mental health has pushed our volunteers to reach out and listen around them, to ascertain whether people are facing any issues regarding their mental health and to help them address those issues. During this time between March and May 2020, Nabhit Kapur has trained 54 Volunteers called PMF COVID-19 envoys to reach out digitally to someone who needs help, post motivational quotes, psychological wellbeing help tips etc. Nabhit Kapur was the first one inn New Delhi to initiate this concept for which he was featured by Forbes India on 7 April 2020.
OPEN Mic MENTAL HEALTH KARAOKE:
In another example of Kapur’s multi-pronged approach to his mission, this unique initiative used peer tutoring to bring mental health stability. The main idea focused here to motivate youth, adults, peers to speak and talk. Basics like sharing expressions, diary writing, ventilation of feelings etc. are focused in this group.
One of the most important aspects of PMF is Peacful Mind Mentors initiative started on 1 May 2020. PMF Mentors who are entrusted with driving the conversation around a healthy state of mind with listeners who will then step into a confident future. Peacful Mind Mentors are belonging to diverse backgrounds. These include various former heads of state, UN professionals, Professors etc.
His recent video highlighting the idea of “Mental health can become a global pandemic” in near future has gained a lot of viewership on social media and is being published as article by various media platforms.
Apart from these, other path-breaking initiatives of Prof. Kapur are World leaders for mental health and Brave COVID-19 fund set to be announced soon.
For his exceptional work he has been featured by various online news panels and print magazines like Cooperate Investment times, Exelon magazine, Forbes, Statesman, daily hunt etc.
Through his exemplary leadership this charismatic socio-entrepreneur is the harbinger of a new era, when mental health would be given its due importance sans the social stigma. However, for that, more concerted efforts at the global as well as the grassroots level are required. He still feels, that mental health is largely an ignored issue among a large section of global population, including youth and people have a negative perception about mental health and don’t see it as an important issue as most of the times they don’t even know that it exists. Through his passionate social interventions and ground work, Prof. Kapur wants to exhort everyone to join this movement aimed towards making mental health a necessary aspect of everyone’s life.

Special Appearances & Lectures:
David is an amazing Manager and Mentor who always helps members of his team beyond what you would normally expect. His guidance has assisted many people at work to progress their careers, achieve a better work life balance and more recently to continue their journey to becoming a Chartered Construction Manager.
Nothing is ever too much trouble for David and he is an extremely valued member of the team.
The East Shropshire Memory Service offers assessment, diagnosis and home treatment for those who are experiencing memory problems. In all of my working life, I have never worked with such a thoughtful, empathetic and caring team who pride themselves on going above and beyond in order to provide a gold standard level of care to their client group. The Occupational Therapist’s, Psychologist’s, Community mental Health Nurses (CMHN), Community Support Workers (CSW), Assistant Practitioners, Nurse Practitioners, Psychiatrists and the Manager are all a credit to National Health Service (NHS) and I would very much like their dedication and hard work to be recognised and praised by ‘The Green Organisation’. The coronavirus has thrown many challenges at the Memory Service, including redeployment, which has seen the team working with a skeleton staff force at times. However, the staff just ‘get on with it’ and adapt by creating novel and creative ways of working to ensure their clients continued to receive the best service possible.
Petra is a constant shining light. She has an amazing blog called Ten Thousand Things, reminding me to appreciate what is around me, nature, life and being alive. Petra is an inspiration at work, sharing with us her amazing baking as well as bringing others along with her. I love that even when she’s not having the best day herself she will still go out of her way to check on others, seeing how she can help and encouraging her team, colleagues and those around her. She has even built fab relationships with people who she has never met! Thank you Petra!

Displaying courage in a time of crisis: David has devoted countless hours as Captain of a Red Cross Disaster Action Team( DAT) that responds to residential home and apartment fires providing emergency lodging, financial assistance, leading responders on-scene on his nights off work. He served as Shelter Supervisor for 3 California Wildfires, Canteen Lead on-site for Newhall Pass Tunnel Explosion & Metrolink Train Derailment, Casework Team for Hurricane Katrina Disaster Relief Operation (DRO) (4 weeks) & Hurricane Rita (3 weeks) and 2017 Louisiana Floods DRO Casework Team, 2018 California Floods Shelter Supervisor in Sun Valley, CA., 2019 DAT Supervisor on the Bug Bomb Explosion Response & Getty Fire Shelter Supervisor. In addition, he is a Red Cross Youth District Youth Advisor mentoring youth and as a Youth First Aid Team Supervisor where he ensures youth age 16-18 are trained in Emergency Medical Response, CPR for Professional Rescue and youth age 17 to become Emergency Medical Responders and he supervises them on Red Cross First Aid Teams. In addition to DAT Captain during COVID-19 he has become a Public Affairs Officer and Public Information Officer and provided more than 370 hours worked as Red Cross Media Hotline Officer. David was recently at work as an Immigration Services Officer when he was rushed by ambulance during work when a virus entered his Pericardium outer lining of the heart and he could not breathe. He was in recovery for close to 2 weeks. We’re amazed he recovered so fast. Thanks to amazing doctors he is back with us. We want him to take it easy and take a break from volunteering during COVID-19. We already had a big scare with David. He’s supposed to rest and take it easy but, he feels such a strong dedication to help his community during COVID-19 that he is going back to Red Cross and next week he will be back as a Public Information Officer with Disaster Public Affairs and next month after he’s medically cleared, back on duty as Captain of a Disaster Team. He is my hero and I would like him to be recognized for all he does to help people.
