Celebrating Haringey’s unsung heroes
Four volunteers and one member of staff were nominated and received special 'Haringey Hero' certificates from the Mayor of Haringey. As part of the Haringey Circle/Haringey Reach and Connect volunteer programme, Edwin Weiss, Lydia Penke, Gavin Somasundram and Liz Holford gave up their time to collect and deliver over 600 prescriptions to local people who were either shielding or unable to leave home in the first lockdown. Haringey Circle Manager, Paul Kramer, managed the team and delivered medication himself, working up to seven days a week.
Mayor of Haringey, Sheila Peacock, thanked them all for their "incredible efforts in making a difference in our community during the coronavirus pandemic".
We would like to congratulate them and all our volunteers for making a difference to the lives of Haringey residents at this very difficult time.
