Grantham’s Co-op community kindness competition winner announced

On the 1st December Co-op launched their community kindness competition, which encouraged the readers of Grantham 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 Grantham 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 Grantham’s prize draw is the entire care team at Harrowby Lodge Nursing Home, who were nominated by Sarah-Jane Dixon.

Sarah-Jane said the care team have “worked tirelessly” throughout the pandemic, putting their residents’ needs ahead of their own, and so could really use a “morale boost”.

Sarah-Jane said that nominating the girls at Harrowby Lodge was her way of saying thank you.

“You really are my heroes.”

Despite a difficult year, it’s clear that the people of Grantham have pulled together to support one another. Our community it stronger than ever.

Thank you to the care team at Harrowby Lodge Nursing Home for being true local heroes and showing us that when times are tough, it’s the small things that make a big difference.

We wish you all a merry Christmas and a happy new year.
