Community Hero Award – Georgia Speet

Georgia Speet, Community Hero

The fourteenth of our Cat Community Hero Awards has been presented to Georgia Speet, of Stapeley.

Georgia was nominated by Aryan Sadler, who told that she would like to nominate Mrs Georgia Speet on behalf of all of the Stapeley community for everything she has done during lockdown.

Aryan told us that “Georgia is a very kind, considerate and very thoughtful lady, she teaches Drama at local primary schools and has gone above and beyond for the children and families in the community to help keep the children busy and give them things to look forward to, I feel if anyone deserves this award it’s Georgia.”

During lockdown Georgia has kept the children in the community occupied by:

•Organising the happy trail in Stapeley – the children have painted and decorated stones, pebbles in all different ways, these have then been placed in a “happy trail” which made the community, both children and adults, smile while out on the “one walk of the day”. Georgia has been out on a regular basis tidying the area and keeping on top of the happy trail. 

• Georgia then set up a ‘Sponsor A Stone’ just giving page so the community could all come together to raise money for the charity “Mind” the target was £1000 which has been hit and more.

• Georgia set up ‘Waving Hands to Keyworkers’ which encouraged children to draw round and decorate their hands which were placed on canes and on show for all keyworkers to see and enjoy on their way to work.

•A drop off point for cards, pictures and letters was set up and organised by Georgia so the children could deliver these to residents at Claradon Care Home. 

• Candy court sweet shop was set up by Georgia, she welcomed lots of children to help out on the sweet stall, giving them the opportunity to keep busy and help raise money, she made up lots of goodie bags, sweet cones, popcorn movie night packs and much, much more, again all monies raised was put to the just giving a page for Mind, now the target has been hit Georgia is working on a second charity.

• Georgia also set up ‘All you need is Love’ outside Pear tree school, this was to encourage children to write messages to teachers, friends they missed during this difficult time so we could all enjoy this out on our walks.

Well done Georgia, from all the team at The Cat, we are awarding you one of our Community Hero Awards and will be delivering a special Cat Cake, Baked by Gill (Facebook), which we hope you enjoy.
