It was really fantastic to see the work of volunteers in the mutual aid groups being recognised at the Calderdale Community Spirit Awards last month. People who had gone above and beyond to support communities during the covid19 pandemic. Caroline Beardsmore of Your Tod Squad and Louise Reed of Focus4HOpe in Brighouse won an award for Outstanding Individual Achievement, with Jan Lymer of Calder Cares winning a commendation.
If you want to warm your cockles, and see all the amazing things volunteers around the borough have been doing this year, then check out the Youtube video of the online award ceremony. Definitely will cheer you up!
