We were delighted that Mel Hudson, who runs Slade Green Foodbank in Bexley, was nominated for a Sun Who Cares Wins Award in the category of Unsung Hero, for her support to the local community. Mel has worked tirelessly to ensure that residents of Bexley have access to basic food supplies.
Mel also runs first aid mental health courses, provides debt advice as well as hosting health and wellbeing days for residents. Mel mixed with the likes of Spice Girl, Mel B, boxer, Anthony Joshua and other well-known faces who were on hand to recognise the wonderful staff and volunteers who work across health and care.
The awards were shown on C4 and All 4 last Sunday and you can read about Mel’s nomination here.
