Bridge is delighted to announce that it was nominated and awarded the Rose of Northamptonshire Award aimed to recognise and celebrate the hard work and determination of those who have helped their communities and those most at risk during the pandemic.
This Award is part of the ‘Unsung Heroes of Northamptonshire’ initiative and is a joint venture from Northamptonshire County Council, the High Sheriff’s office and the Lord Lieutenant of Northamptonshire.
Bridge was recognised for the work it has carried out, and continues to carry out, for its members in providing 1:1 telephone support and groups via Zoom as well as outside activities such as fitness groups, bike rides and photography groups when government guidelines allow. Support also continues through working with rough sleepers in the county and in providing food from the generous food donations received by Bridge.
The award was presented virtually on 20th January 2020 and was received by a member of Bridge staff.
Thank you to all the staff and volunteers at Bridge whose commitment has enabled the service Bridge provides to continue during this unprecedented time.
