The Well Project fought off the competition to be named as this year’s Community Group winners at our first ever digital Love Where You Live Awards.
The Well Project helps support the local communities in Normanton and the surrounding area. The group works across the whole community providing a range of activities and services for people to get involved in. During the coronavirus outbreak, The Well Project has acted as a Community Hub for those in need of support. They have 63 volunteers who, between them, have given over 26,000 hours of their time to help those who need it most.
Michelle, from The Well Project, said: “Here at The Well Project, we were so excited and proud to be nominated in the category of Best Community Group in this year’s awards. We watched the Facebook posts and videos, thinking we did not have a chance against the other fantastic Community Groups so when we were named as the winners we jumped for joy! Sally from WDH had dropped off a delicious party platter earlier that day which we shared with our volunteers at the Food Bank before the broadcasts. We are absolutely delighted to have won, it means a lot to all of us here at The Well and to know we are thought so highly of by people who voted for us. We are providing youth packs to young people throughout school holidays so the money will help to provide a fun activity in the packs along with the food. A huge thanks to WDH for holding this event, to Sally Dudley for nominating us and to everyone who voted for us, it really means a lot.”
