Our Here to Help Heroes campaign is here, promoting local heroes that have gone above and beyond over the last year, truly making a difference to our tenants and the wider community.
Take a look at our first few heroes stories below:
As one of Creating Enterprise ’s Wellbeing Volunteers, Jon regularly braves the supermarket and pharmacy queues in order to collect and deliver groceries and medication to Cartrefi Conwy tenants who are unable to leave their homes as a result of the COVID-19 crisis.
He has developed quite a reputation for going above and beyond, recently completing six trips in one day! We are so grateful and proud to say that Jon is a part of our team of fantastic volunteers.
Mr & Mrs Hargreaves, our tenants from Cerrigydrudion have been praised by their neighbours for their hard work and tireless support in helping others over the last year. “They have never stopped helping throughout this pandemic, always making sure the old ladies are ok in our community with daily phone calls or calling on them. They go out shopping for us to the main supermarkets, and nothing is too much for them.”
When COVID-19 struck, Jill was unable to continue volunteering on the reception desk at Creating Enterprise’s Mochdre office or with Cartrefi Conwy’s Community Involvement Team.
Instead, she signed up to become a Wellbeing Volunteer, and now makes regular phone calls to fellow Cartrefi Conwy tenants to ensure that they are safe and well and to offer a listening ear. Jill’s dedication and enthusiasm are commendable, and we are grateful and proud to have her on board as one of our valued volunteers.
