During the COVID-19 pandemic I started a Community Hero Award to celebrate individuals and businesses who had gone above and beyond for their communities.
This month I was delighted to meet up with the wonderful Café Roda in Gilmerton Community Centre to present Denise and Wendy with their award. Over Christmas Café Roda and the local community in Gilmerton put on Christmas meals and provided presents for local families.
They have only been open 6 months but are quickly turning into a local institution. Please do get along if you live locally and follow them on Facebook.
If you know a local person or organisation who deserves recognition for their work in their community please get in touch with their contact details and why they should receive the award.
