covid hero competition

After a difficult year for many, back in December 2020, we ran a competition to find six Covid Heroes within the Mill Hill community. Each of the winners received a bottle of Bruno Paillard Champagne as a prize.

We asked our customers and residents to tell us who they thought was a local ‘Covid Hero’ - those people who had made a difference to others during the pandemic.

We were blown away by the quality of nominations we received!

Andy Smith, Owner at Mill Hill Wines, said: “We wanted to recognise and reward community heroes during the Covid 19 pandemic. After an extremely challenging year for so many people, it was an uplifting experience to read all the nominations and acts of kindness that occurred in our local community.”

After much deliberation, the winners are:

Louisa Walters - nominated for raising a huge £70,000 supporting independent restaurants and helping to feed NHS workers.


Mark Warren - nominated for his dedication to the Mill Hill community and for running the Inside Mill Hill group (a group which has more than 13,000 members and provided support to residents and businesses during the pandemic).


Jenni Crampton - nominated for making more than 300 items (scrubs, gowns, masks, aprons, and laundry bags) for essential NHS workers during the first lockdown.


Jen @gingrkitchen - nominated for motivating others through lockdown by posting easy family recipes, cook-a-longs for children and cooking for the vulnerable.


Miri - nominated by the Deverson family for her outstanding community spirit. A stranger to the family, Miri offered her help in collecting supplies and medicine throughout the first lockdown.


Romel Miah, from Day of the Raj - nominated for his generosity, community spirit and hard work in providing free meals to NHS staff, those in need and to a food bank.

We are sure you will agree these are all worthy winners and we thank them all for everything they did for their fellow residents in 2020.

Well done to our Mill Hill Wines Covid Heroes!
