Community Hero Award – Georgina Greenhalgh

Georgina Greenhalgh – Community Hero

The eleventh of our Cat Community Hero Awards has been presented to Georgina Greenhalgh who lives in Haslington, Crewe.

Andrea Holland, who nominated Georgina told us that “Georgina was furloughed from her job and instead of sitting in this glorious sunshine she has been sitting at a sewing machine churning out face masks. 

“She started out making them as a kindness for family and friends but anyone who saw one wanted one and she is now in full flow making masks for all sorts of people, asking for just a £1 donation per mask.

“She had raised more than £3,000 which she is splitting between the St Paul’s Food Bank in Crewe, the Haslington Covid Support Group and the Haslington Neighbours community group.  She has a heart of gold and I would love to see her recognised.”

Well done Georgina, 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.
