​Suffolk Woman Nominated National Hero

A woman from Suffolk has reached the final in a national competition to find young adults who have helped in their communities during the 2020 pandemic.

Ayesha Fordham, 20, from Bury St Edmunds, was nominated for Urban Jungle’s Heroes 2020 by her sister, Sharrie Fordham, 24, who said her sister had worked hard during 2020 supporting a sufferers of dementia.

“My sister Ayesha is my hero because she works hard as a support worker for adults with dementia,” said Sharrie.

“Even though she is rushed off her feet, she always has a smile on her face and continues to spread some cheer to everyone she knows.”

Jimmy Williams is CEO of Urban Jungle, the company which is running the competition. He said: “We think young adults have had to endure a lot in 2020 and want to do our bit to say ‘thank you’.

“So we want to meet the people, hear the stories and give thanks and recognition to those who have helped us all through.

“Perhaps they went shopping for an ill neighbour, took up the slack at work when others couldn’t or have been on the front line. We want to hear your nomination.”

Nominate your hero for 2020 by January 7th, 2021, and they could receive a £250 Amazon voucher and become Urban Jungle’s 2020 Hero.
