On the 1st December Co-op launched their community kindness competition, which encouraged the readers of Crewe Nub News to nominate someone in the community who has shown kindness – no matter how big or how small.
Despite a tough year, our friends, family, neighbours and colleagues across the nation have been helping out where they can. That's why the Co-op are celebrating kindness in our community.
And nominate you did. It's clear there is no lack of kindness in Crewe with lots of nominations for lots of deserving people.
All the nominations were entered into a draw with the chance to win a luxury Co-op Christmas hamper worth £50. Amongst other treats, the hamper includes a bottle of Co-op Irresistible Prosecco and delicious chocolate to add to the Christmas festivities.
The winner of Crewe's prize draw is Sam Irlam, who was nominated by Dan Jones. She was nominated for the fundraising work she has done for her high school friend, Lorna, who has been diagnosed with terminal cancer. Lorna has three children, two of which are new-born twins.
Sam has set up a gofundme page for Lorna which has already raised over £15,000.
It's clear that the people of Crewe have pulled together to support one another.
We wish you all a merry Christmas and a happy new year.
