Barney does it Best (Unsung Heroes of Teesdale)

A specially designed Thank You card is being printed using the ‘Barney does it Best’ theme to allow individuals or groups of individuals to thank their own Unsung Heroes. The card will be for sale through various outlets or stalls in Barnard Castle, and a postal option is being investigated.

The card will be for sale through various outlets or stalls in Barnard Castle, and a postal option is being investigated.

The idea behind the card is that it has been very difficult to come up with a complete and definitive list of the Unsung Heroes of Barnard Castle and Teesdale. There are clearly defined groups who have been supporting the community through the lockdown but many more go unrecognised, e.g. it could be a neighbour who has got shopping or a local business who has gone overboard to support their community. A card will be the way of showing a person’s gratitude with space inside the card to write a personal message.

The card will cost £2.00 per unit with all profit going towards a future event celebrating VC Day (Victory over Corona). I am sure that many of the U3A membership will want to support this worthwhile project.

Also, if any U3A members would like to help distribute the cards then any assistance would be greatly received.

There is a dedicated e-mail address set-up for correspondence: TeesdaleUnsungHeroes@gmail.com.

On behalf of Barnard Castle Rotary – many thanks for your support.
