At the end of last year, we put a call out on our social feeds to help us find someone special who we could reward for going above and beyond to support our local community.
Wendy Burford is a teaching assistant who was chosen as our local hero for always going the extra mile for others. Over the past year she has ran virtual online sewing, crafts and cooking sessions for the children in her class, as well as volunteered her time at a local soup kitchen and the Plymouth and Cornwall cancer charity shop.
As a small thank you for all of her hard work we rewarded Wendy with a £250 Drake Circus gift card to spend on herself.
We’d like to thank all those who entered the competition. We had lots of brilliant entries and heard the stories of so many amazing people who have gone out of their way to support others during this challenging time.
