The High Sheriff Special Recognition award for supporting the people of Bury


Back in June, Bury Council were asked to nominate organisations and individuals that had made an outstanding contribution to the community during the COVID-19 pandemic for The High Sheriff Special Recognition Award.

We received the news from senior leaders at Bury council, Julie Gonda, Director of Community Commissioning, Tracy Minshull, Acting Assistant Director – Adult Social Care Commissioning and Matt Logan Provider Relationship Lead thanked us by saying;              

“We are so proud of all the work you have done in not just ensuring the people of Bury continue to receive the quality care and support they always have, but working creatively and innovatively to enhance the lives of so many vulnerable people that we could not pick just one of you. We nominated all the Care Providers of Bury and are delighted to say that you are one of the winners!

Congratulations and thank you so much for continuing to work with us and your ongoing efforts to keep the people of Bury safe and supported”.

The team at RFI and SFI were so happy to be nominated, when the news arrived to say we were one of the winners we were very humbled but also so proud that we could support our community and the people of Bury at a time when they needed it the most. 

In his recognition letter The High Sheriff Dr Eamonn O’Neal DL said

“I am delighted to present you with The High Sheriff Special Recognition Award.

The Award is made to an individual or group of individuals who have made an outstanding contribution to the community during the difficult circumstances brought about by the C-19 pandemic.

You were nominated for your collective commitment and dedication to limit the impact of the pandemic and lockdown on the lives of your customers and ensure that some of the most vulnerable people of Bury have been kept safe, well and healthy. You have shown kindness and innovation in enriching residents’ lives”.

Thank you to Bury, the council and the wider community it is a pleasure to serve you and we wish to continue to do so for a long time to come.
