Kate Stacey, 19, Carlton in Lindrick
At the beginning of the pandemic Kate was studying Business at Sheffield Hallam University and she also had a part-time job. She came back to Carlton in Lindrick to be with her family, and began helping people affected by Covid-19. She worked with youth centre volunteers at the Carlton in Lindrick Volunteers network to deliver over 2,000 prescriptions to people who were isolating or over 65 throughout the local area.
Kate helped in Carlton as well as at the Dinnington support hub, for people in the villages on the Nottinghamshire / Yorkshire border. She used her own car and fuel, and was always willing to go the extra mile and help without being asked.
As well as providing practical help, she also gave people someone to talk to at a time when many people were isolated. The local pharmacy would not have managed if it had not been for volunteers like Kate, that went out every day delivering prescriptions.
