Macclesfield College student wins Coronavirus Support Civic Award from Mayor of Macclesfield.

Susan Johnson, who studies a Life Skills course with us at Macclesfield College, has been awarded the Coronavirus Support Civic Award by the then Mayor of Macclesfield, Cllr Janet Jackson, for her dedication during the first lockdown.

Susan was delivering approximately 300 food parcels to struggling families in the peak of the pandemic alongside Cheshire Streetwise, a local charity focused on providing education, support and counselling in the local area. Susan beamed “I am so happy to have won the award, I can’t believe it. It’s so important to help the community where you can, but I really didn’t think I’d win an award!”

Cllr Jackson, former Mayor of Macclesfield told Nub News “At this unprecedented time in the town’s history, everyone is being called upon to do their best to support their community. From those staying in isolation to protect the NHS, those who are helping their family, friends and neighbours, and all those working so hard in the essential services. The Coronavirus Community Support Civic Award was created to recognise those individuals who have gone above and beyond their duty to help in the local community.”

Life Skills tutor Olivia Muir added “Susan volunteered all through lockdown and continues to do so.  We are so proud to be her teachers here at College.  She is so kind, hardworking and selfless. We’re so glad that she’s being recognised for all of her hard work.”

At Macclesfield College, we take great pride in the work and achievements of our students. Congratulations Susan on this fantastic achievement, we are delighted that your kindness is being recognised.
