‘Community Champions’ in Harrow to be recognised in new competition

People in Harrow are being invited to nominate an unsung community champion who has made a difference to them or to the local community during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Nominees will be entered into the competition to win a luxury afternoon tea delivery as a small token of thanks for their efforts.

The teams behind McCarthy Stone’s Randolph Houseand Rosen House retirement developments in Harrow are inviting nominations for members of the public of all ages, whose acts of kindness, charitable efforts, or goodwill throughout the challenges of the past two years have so far gone unrecognised.

Randolph House and Rosen House want to take the opportunity to put the spotlight on ordinary people who have made a positive difference to the lives of others over the last few years.

It could be someone who has gone the extra mile to help friends or neighbours who have been isolating, launched an initiative to help emergency workers, or lifted the spirits of an individual with a simple and selfless act of kindness during the pandemic.

However big or small, tens of luxury afternoon teas will be delivered to doors in Harrow ahead of Christmas, in recognition of those who turned a difficult time into something good.

Mayor of Harrow, Cllr Ghazanfar Ali, will act as independent judge and select 20 nominees to receive an afternoon tea delivery each, complete with a hamper of goodies.

To submit a nomination, please email mccarthyandstone@mccann.com with your nominee’s name and the reasons why you are nominating them.  Please also include your name and contact details.  All nominations must be entitled ‘Harrow Community Champions Competition’. Nominate your unsung hero by 21 January 2022.

Sam Watkins, Divisional Sales Director for McCarthy Stone, commented: “It has been a challenging time over the past two years, but as is often the case, dark times can bring out the best in society and at Randolph House we were incredibly lucky to have so many people putting in fantastic efforts and giving up their time.

“From cleaners and carers, to members of the public who have helped out with supermarket shopping, sent little cards and gifts, or offered to run errands. The selfless actions of those within the local community have been so humbling and we wanted to do something, however small, to say thank you and to give all the community champions in Harrow the opportunity to be recognised.”

The winner must agree to publicity (personal meeting with the Mayor Ali), and no correspondence can be entered into. The contact details of all those who submit a nomination will be passed onto McCarthy Stone so they can contact you if your nominee is chosen – but for no other reason.
