Geoff Norris

This 53-year-old delivery driver couldn't bear to see the elderly and vulnerable go hungry when delivery slots were all filled up, so after work he delivered groceries in his own car to those in need. He encouraged colleagues to help out, and along with his wife and daughter, managed the shopping, purchasing, and delivery of goods for 15 weeks. He was awarded a BEM: British Empire Medal.

Julie Cook

At 56, this supermarket worker from South Wales dedicated her free time to ensure her local care home got their much-needed supplies throughout the pandemic. With a weekly grocery list in hand, she'd gather all that was needed and made sure it all got to the care home.

Ashleigh Linsdell

This NHS nurse was awarded an OBE (Order of the British Empire) for her tireless efforts in providing protective scrubs for her colleagues in her free time. After long days at work, she'd buy the fabric to make scrubs for her colleagues, and then set up For The Love of Scrubs on Facebook. From her home Lindsell cut the fabric and sent it to the 70,000 volunteers who'd joined her in her efforts. With over $1 million raised, Lindsell helped keep those on the frontline safe.

Jolene Miller

This 42-year-old former paramedic took time off work as a train driver to help her former colleagues, who were in desperate need of help. She lent her support for three months helping to assess those coming in for treatment. Although she received a BEM, she's quick to bring to attention the tireless work of those still in the NHS.

David Maguire

From the first day of lockdown, this restaurant owner provided free meals for those working for the NHS or who were vulnerable. For 11 weeks he and his team made 800 free meals to hand out, all while living in his garage, as his wife was quarantining. He puts his MBE honor down to the hard work of his other staff members.

Dabirul Islam Choudhury

Inspired by Captain Sir Tom, this 100-year-old from London raised over half a million dollars for completing 1,000 laps of his garden while observing Ramadan. He was made an OBE for his efforts.

Jay Flynn

This former pub landlord raised nearly $1 million through charitable donations, thanks to entertaining nearly 200,000 people across the globe due with his free virtual pub quizzes. Although he raised a lot of money, Flynn also ensured that people had a little fun during this tricky period. He was awarded an MBE for his efforts.
