No matter how awful 2020 has been (and at times it really has) its certainly been a fantastic year for community involvement and volunteering. Across Calderdale more people than ever have been looking out for their neighbours, helping out the vulnerable and finding new ways to reach out and support strangers in their communities.
Annual awards celebrations have sadly not been able to go ahead this year due to the COVID19 situation but we don’t think the amazing community effort should go unrecognised.
Who has stood out to you this year by making a real difference to local people? If you could send them a message what would you say?
We will be publishing Community Thank Yous across North and East Halifax and the Lower Valley on our Community Blogs and Friday Flyers. Tell us who you would like to thank and we’ll pass the message on!
