edited January 2020 in Community updates
In 2019, we want to celebrate our wonderful Community Champions and so each month, we have been giving one of our champions the new Community Champion of the Month badge.
However, this month we couldn't just focus on one of our Community Champions, when 4 have been recognised not just by us, but by Scope as a whole — winning Scope Volunteer of the Year Awards! So this month we'd like to give a very special thank you to:
@Ails - The winner of our 'New Volunteer' award
@thespiceman - Who won our 'Engaging Communities' award
@Ami2301 - As our 'Game Changer' of the year
@poppy123456 - Whose award is for 'Empowering Others'
We're so happy for each of you and grateful to have you as part of the team!

    Hello @Adrian_Scope   Thank you from my heart, to the rest of the Team.
    Especially have to mention @Chloe_Scope.
    Sorry if I embarrassed you my friend, just your kind and supportive to me. Love your words on my recipes thank you and not only me but the community champions and the community.
    Glad to have met you pleasure working with you and every one else from the SCOPE team..
    This award is not only for me but the community the friends. I know others who have won will say the same.
    On behalf of my self thank you never felt so emotive.
    Last time I got anything was a years supply of After Eight Mints won them in a competition, unlucky so they all melted by quarter to eight lol...
    Old joke but that is me, just a gentle friend uses humour to help bring a smile to any one and a community champion with a heart offering compassion and empathy and my time to those whom I meet and love,  care about every day.
    Long may it continue .
    Made a lot of friends whom we support, cherish care for every day.
    They know who they are.
    Thank you for being my friend. Love you.
    Please take care every one.

    @Ami2301 - Not knowing your story, but seeing just a glimpse of it just now, just shows what an amazing person you are, & also the importance of Scope. You certainly do your role justice, I hope you don't mind me saying, as I've only been here a short while.
    Thank you for all I've seen you do here, & my warmest congratulations in sharing this award with your friends.

    @Ami2301 You are an incredible person and i'm extremely honoured to call you my friend. Yes, it's only been a few months that we started talking but i'm so thankful that you messaged me that night. I'll always remember that night, a couple of members were being rather nasty to me on here and i think you must have sensed my anxiety at the time because i received a message from you asking me if i was ok.

    I'll always be grateful to you for messaging me that night because yes i was upset and anxious, some past members have been rather hurtful towards me but you were there to make sure i was ok. 

    Our friendship continued on FB messenger and oh my goodness, we do have a laugh lol. My daughter asks me all the time, who am i laughing at and then says "oh, Ami" lol You're so funny and never fail to have me in stitches of laughter. Watching those videos of the new foods was the funniest thing i've ever watched, still more to watch but had to stop because my sides were aching so much lol. BTW i have some cucumber here especially for you, would you like some? LOLOL

    You're incredibly sweet and have a heart of gold! I love you to bits!

    Then we have @thespiceman yet another dear friend of mine, never fails to make me laugh with his jokes, almost making me fall off my chair laughing. Choking on my drinks, so badly i've had to put a note on my computer desk saying "don't drink when reading a message from thepiceman" haha.

    My days are most certainly brighter and not as lonely thanks to the both of you for being such wonderful friends. Love you both!

    Sometimes i think i spend far too much time on here but helping others is in my heart and no matter what i do i just can't get away from wanting to help others. My help and advice will continue for as long as i can.

    Thank you to admin for asking me to be a community champion all those months ago!

    @poppy123456 - Your post also resonates with me, as I've always wanted to help others. This community is helped enormously by your knowledge of the benefit system, your patience & care, which are seen daily.
    If I may, I would also like to add my warmest congratulations acknowledging all that you do. Thank you, Poppy.
