We are really proud of the fantastic work that the key workers of Norwich have been doing during these unprecedented times and want to celebrate them. Therefore we have created this Wall of Fame where all those that continue to go to work so that we can stay safe at home can be recognised. We have rewarded everyone on the wall of fame with gifts to show our graditute for their hard work.
Victoria was our first place winner who won £150 for a day out at Castle Quarter.
Victoria is a carer for her mother and father who are both housebound. She also has 2 autistic children Saul, 14 and Maria, 9. Both are opposite ends of the spectrum with their individual special needs. Victoria does her parent’s shopping, cleaning, laundry, and their tea. Then she has it all to do again for her children. Saul goes to school but Maria has been home since lockdown and has very little understanding of what’s going on. Victoria has her own back problems and pain in her hips. She still finds time to run her own blog where she can talk to other SEN parents and they, in turn, can talk to others on her page.
Victoria also received nominations from both her husband and a friend.
Kelly was our second place winner who won a £50 TK Maxx voucher.
Kelly has been such a godsend, not just to me (her mum) but to a couple of my elderly neighbour’s too. She works in a supermarket and before she starts work, she makes sure that she’s got lists of any shopping needed, then after work, shops and delivers to us all. She’s my hero.
Kelly was also nominated by her friends.
Vicky is a staff nurse on intensive care at James Paget Hospital in Gorleston. She works on the front line daily, fighting the war of COVID – 19. Every shift she is dealing with the unknown knowledge of COVID, lack of PPE , caring for patients who are so sick with life threatening conditions, not knowing if they will make it through the shift or if at all. But Vicky is not just a nurse she is a mum too! As much as she wants to help to win this war, she is so scared of bringing the coronavirus home to her family. Vicky, you are an amazing lady.
Serg is a key worker and has been working away for 8 weeks over the lockdown. He is an overhead power linesman and the show must go on. We are missing him terribly but proud of him for being out there . . . This would be the perfect family treat for when he finally comes home.
Ailsa is a GP and mum of three juggling work, homeschooling a demented cat and 8 chickens! She is being challenged by having to get her head around a lot of new technology! 🩺🦠🩺 Plus she has turned our house into a laundrette sorting clothes for local distribution to those in need ❤️.
Trevor is working tirelessly distributing food and clothing in Great Yarmouth.
Sadie is a deputy sister at the N & N, working really hard, and home schooling her three children. She definitely deserves a treat!
Paul works for British Gas. He is going out there making sure people have hot water and heating, plus they have teamed up with local food banks and are picking up the food the supermarkets donate. These people are often forgotten. He also has a vulnerable little boy at home so he has to be extra careful but is still going out there to help the people who need it.
Matthew works at the Royal Mail sorting office. He’s flat out sorting people’s online purchases as well as all the extra letters and cards being sent to loved ones that can’t be together at this time. As well as coming home to try and sleep whilst his wild kids are running riot… sorry I mean being home schooled haha!
Jessica is a doctor on the front line in the NNUH. It’s so busy she barely gets time to breathe! She is a true #NHSHero 💙🌈💙
Phil is a frontline keyworker – a firefighter . He is one true hero and our true hero! He has rescued me and my family from a very traumatic past and he is always putting his life at risk at work and supporting the NHS in saving as many lives as he can because as firefighters they support and help paramedics with urgent 999 calls. Firefighters don’t get enough recognition. Off duty, he is always on duty and if anyone is in need of help or assistance he is always there supporting and helping those in need. He has never asked for anything in return and we are truly in his debt so it would be nice just to be able to give something to him just to show we truly do appreciate him and appreciate the fact that he puts his life at risk for others.
Sarah is going to work at Tesco’s (4am start) whilst looking after her two boys , home schooling and also dealing with her anxiety, which is very difficult at this terrible time. Well done Sarah – keep up the great work!
Eloise works at the N&N, putting herself on the frontline to help others. She then takes amazing care of her little 1 year old who I’m sure is very proud of her mummy. We love you Ellie, very proud of you too and we enjoy the mask selfies!
Shelley is a Manager at Sainsbury’s in Norwich and has worked long hours through the crisis and does her upmost to keep customers and her team safe, never putting herself first. Shelley also has 2 children and her husband is also a key worker so they have had very little time together as a family . I’m proud of her.
Kallie is a nurse and has been working on COVID wards and as a COVID screening nurse. I think she deserves a nice treat.
Mercedes works in A&E at NNUH, loves her job helping others at this terrible time.
Simon is a bin man, he works every day, emptying people’s bins and keeping the streets tidy. He works hard despite having knee and hip problems!
Kerry is a catering manager in a care home. He works so hard and also goes above and beyond his role for the residents. He has illnesses himself. He goes in every day and even on his days off. We have 3 young children that he provides for and he never asks for anything in return. He’s our hero 💙
