Meet This Year’s Community Champions: Yvonne Davy

From TDC's Amy Allison

Yvonne is Chair of the BMECP 50+ (a multicultural older people’s group). During lockdown, Yvonne did whatever she could to continue to keep in touch with the 30+ members of the group. A weekly zoom session was set up for those who could use IT, and a WhatsApp group was also started. Yvonne kept in regular phone contact with many members, spoke to the TDC's Community Development Workers weekly and passed on any concerns about members and planned any activities that could be shared/sent out to the group.

Yvonne organised for a Christmas hamper to be delivered to all group members which many said helped them to feel connected to the group – that people were still there. Since mid September the group has started to meet in person. Yvonne organised restarting the group and is pivotal in planning the groups activities.
