Not all superheroes wear capes. The coronavirus lockdown gave us a renewed respect and admiration for our healthcare, teachers and frontline workers who kept our communities running while the rest of us stayed home.
Suddenly our doctors, nurses, teachers and even supermarket staff were our first defence, and at Smidge, we wanted to do something to highlight their heroism.
Over the past four weeks, our Facebook followers nominated people whose efforts they admired during the pandemic. Each week, we chose a worthy recipient and sent them a two-pack of Smidge Wines to say thank you and pay it forward. We got such a kick out of it - it was a simple thing for us to do but we loved sending off those packs and hope all our recipients have enjoyed their wine.
Our worthy local super heroes were:
Helen M, a nurse from Norwood Day Surgery
Cherie P, a doctor at Victor Medical Centre
Liz T, an ELC teacher
Frank G, a nurse practitioner
We were overwhelmed by the number of nominations we received, and it quite brightened our isolation to read through such inspirational examples. We’d like to thank everyone who recommended someone.
