Honiton’s Co-op community kindness competition winner announced

On the 1 December Co-op launched their community kindness competition, which encouraged the readers of Honiton 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 Honiton 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 Honiton’s prize draw is Cathy McCollum, who was nominated by Carla for providing hundreds of meals for those who are struggling throughout the pandemic.

Cathy ran The Random Kitchen, a group that provide home-cooked meals for those in need, this year and has been working seven days a week to make sure her community is cared for.

Carla felt this hamper would be a well-deserved treat.

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

Thank you, Cathy, for being a true local hero 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.
