Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, Wrexham Volunteer Centre was redeployed into the AVOW Community COVID-19 Response Team. Through this work, AVOW has been in contact with organisations, community groups, and hundreds of volunteers dedicating time to the community and helping those in need.
We’ve seen help and support for families, friends and strangers, through shielding, social distancing and isolation that has made a significant impact in the local community. The nominations aim to showcase some of the work taking place in our community and say ‘Thank You’ to everyone who has played a vital role throughout the pandemic.
AVOW COVID-19 Community Champions
Across Wrexham County Borough, organisations, representatives and residents have nominated their local Community Champions for the awards. Each nominee has, or will be receiving a certificate from AVOW to say ‘Thank You’.
About the Awards
Nominations were open in August 2020. AVOW realise that this collection of Community Champions are a selection of the work we have seen throughout our communities. ‘Thank You’ to everyone who has worked tirelessly. For example, as Key Workers or Volunteers, checking-in on neighbours, setting-up social media groups, following guidance or self-isolating.
AVOW has created a virtual map for residents to see the support in your community. In addition, AVOW will also feature a selection of community stories on our Facebook and Twitter page from Monday 28th September – Sunday 4th October 2020.
