On the 28th March 2022, Ema and Adam we're absolutely honoured to attend the Steve Morgan Awards 2022, a day of celebrating the past twenty... yes twenty years of The Steve Morgan Foundation. Across the day, speakers from charities all supported by the foundation graced the stage to share knowlege, best practice and good news stories of their achievements from the past few years.
We are proud to announce that we have been recognised and awarded the incredibly prestigious Queens Award for Voluntary Service.
The award is the highest honour a voluntary group can receive and acknowledges the tireless efforts of our wonderful team of NEO volunteers.
Judi Blacow, chair of NEOs trustees commented: Our amazing volunteer team keep our Community House open and provide fantastic support services to our local community.
Their duties vary; from driving to collect surplus food supplies, making up and delivering crisis food hampers; working in the shop; cooking; waiting on; cleaning up in the community café; food preparation; gardening; running bingo and kids club; general maintenance etc. The list is endless and we are so lucky to have such a flexible team, willing to tackle most things that come their way.
What a year this has been! The COVID 19 pandemic has affected nearly every aspect of our lives and has resulted in sudden and significant changes to the services we at NEO Community provide. With social distancing, school closures, National lockdowns and shielding; the need for basic food support has been greater than ever.
We are proud that NEO Community has been at the forefront of this support, from setting up a Wirral wide food hub, collaborating with supply and delivery partners and leading activities to support families through the school closures.
Our profile has grown and we are now recognised as the “go to” charity for most humanitarian needs and crisis support.
