Ashford Applause - second champion announced

Published : 11/06/2020

With the Ashford Applause campaign in full swing, we are delighted to continue receiving so many nominations which have brought to light the amazing contribution people are making to the community during the ongoing Covid-19 crisis. 

Ashford Applause is Ashford Borough Council’s and Loveashford’s campaign which shows our community champions how valued they are by shining a spotlight on special people who make a positive difference to our lives when we need it most.   

 We are pleased to announce our second Ashford Applause champion as Holly Cripps

Holly has worked above and beyond the call of duty delivering food parcels and shopping for residents of Stanhope. She keeps in contact with vulnerable residents living in the area and supports them in whatever way she can. 

One of Holly’s nominators, Heather Hayward, said: “During the pandemic Holly has become the Angel of Stanhope. Nothing has been too much trouble for Holly and despite the stress of the current situation she always has a smile on her face and a can do attitude. The families helped by Holly are known by name, and treated with dignity and respect. She really is the Angel of Stanhope and is very deserving of this award.”
