Pete Cooper – Community Hero

The sixteenth of our Cat Community Hero Awards has been presented to Peter Cooper from Crewe.

Pete has been a volunteer at Leighton Hospital for 3 years and is on the Main Entrance as a Meet and Greet.

Carole Salmon told us “I would like to nominate Pete Cooper for the Community Hero Award.

“He is always smiling and keen to support staff and visitors and plays an integral role all in his own time.

Look out for Pete on last year’s celebration of achievement video

“Especially at the moment he is ensuring everyone entering the building at that busy area is given a mask to wear during their time in the hospital.

“His Christmas suit went down a storm in 2019 and people were giving him donations for MCHC to have a selfie with him!

“He also featured in the video which was created for last year’s celebration of achievement  event (see above).”
