We would like to congratulate one of our Housing and Support Officers, Liz Marriott, for receiving a Derbyshire Beacon of Hope Award for her service to the people of Derbyshire during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Liz was nominated by a customer who she had supported during the pandemic:
'Liz has done an amazing job through lockdown despite her own ill-health working from home phoning tenants every day organising any help/support for them, organising food hamper deliveries, being so helpful – a lovely lady who works for Rykneld Homes supporting the community.
'Despite ill health she phoned 100s of tenants every day to check that they are ok. She is so kind and helpful - and she always finds time to help others in need and in the community. She is one in a million.”
The Beacon of Hope Award is awarded by the Lord-Lieutenant, the High Sheriff and Derbyshire County Council, Derby City Council and their Leaders.
This award was a great opportunity for all residents of Derbyshire to show their appreciation and reflect on the hard work done by others.
