A family who have been looking for a worthy cause to donate £500 in memory of a loved one have presented it to the Spalding COVID Kindness Team.
Liz Hallissey, of Claudette Way, Spalding, is one of 16 grandchildren of Violet Mortlock who passed away last year, aged 95.
In her will, all 16 were granted money to be given to a charity with Liz and her daughters Molly (14) and Rosie (10) having been on the lookout for a suitable charity.
Having seen the work that the Kindness team do in helping get vital supplies to some of the most vulnerable in the community during the current COVID-19 crisis, Liz felt it was the perfect cause.
“My granny was a quietly generous person,” said Liz who herself works at the Johnson Hospital in Spalding. “For the last year, since we’d heard about this donation I’ve been looking at where it might go, and the Kindness team seems perfect.
“I feel she’d have liked it to have gone to a cause that was local to us and even though it’s a small amount could make a massive difference.
“I’ve been on the lookout for a year but when I first heard about the Kindness team it just jumped straight out.
“What they’re doing is phenomenal.
“The girls are right behind the decision as, like me, they see the Kindness team is about the community coming together and doing what they can to help others.
“I hope it inspires others to give to the Kindness team so they can continue to do their fantastic work.”
