Community Hero Award – Nikki Allen

Nikki Allen – Community Hero

The tenth of our Cat Community Hero Awards has been presented to Nikki Allen.

Nikki Allen has been a familiar face and bubbly character in Morrisons Nantwich for many a year. Recently however, along with Morrison’s colleague Sue Howe, she took on the additional role of Community Champion(s) which is the stores liaison between the supermarket and the local community.

Undertaking the new role during the height of the Covid-19 Pandemic, Nikki set out to create a number of initiatives designed to raise essential funds for charities, collections and collection point’s for much needed food and essential supplies as well keeping that community spirit high.

One of the initiatives was the Nutty Knitters, who for almost 3 months have been busily knitting Teddy Bears in Hospital scrubs, which have been sold in store, with all proceeds going to the NHS and has raised over £500 to date.

There was a raffle organised in aid of the charity CLIC Sergeant and a “Name the Bunny” competition with proceeds for that going to Stapeley Grange Wildlife Centre and Morrison’s have been one of the key collection points for the food and essential supplies donations for Chance Changing Lives and Nantwich Food Bank groups.

Never one to rest on her laurels, Nikki has lots of idea’s which we will see as new initiatives coming from the store in the weeks and months to come, all destined to help the community and stay connected. So watch this space!

Well done Nikki, 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.
