The competition closed on 31st July 2020 and the winner was drawn at random and has now been announced as Paaie Mellows

Paaie was nominated by her friend Jennifer with the following nomination:

My friend Paaie is a nurse at Nobles and has worked tirelessness throughout this pandemic taking care of Covid positive patients. She has the biggest heart of any person I know and in my mind has gone above and beyond during this pandemic. She noticed that patients were unable to talk to loved ones whilst sick in hospital and tragically some were unable to say goodbye. She decided to wipe the data from her personal iPad and brought it into work so that Covid patients could Skype there families at a time of great need. She also encouraged people to donate their snorkel masks so that they could be turned into ventilators and spent her days off collecting them around the island. On top of that she also found time to food shop for her vulnerable family members and be there for friends who were struggling with lockdown and so much more . I honestly think she deserves a medal but this would be great too. Please consider my incredible friend.

Thank you Paaie and we hope you enjoy your prize!
