Invitation to Workers & Volunteers
Have you been working and volunteering in Erewash during Covid-19?
Would you like your name to be included in a free art project supported by Arts Council England?
This is a really exciting opportunity for important workers and volunteers like you who have given your time to help others. All you have to do is email your name and a brief note about the work/voluntary action that you have carried out during Covid-19 to: – firstname.lastname@example.org
Example: – NAME: J Pitts VOLUNTARY ACTION: Buy and deliver weekly shop
No job is too small to be included so please put your name forward, all are welcome and I would love to hear what you have been doing. Examples might include checking on someone in isolation, delivering or preparing food, delivering newspapers, keeping in touch on the telephone, making PPE, organising volunteers, food bank deliveries, any other acts of kindness or work.
Your names will be presented in an artwork in the future similar to the WW1 Homing Pigeon made with the names of 466 Ilkeston men who gave their lives in WWI. These names are listed on the Cenotaph at Ilkeston Market Place.
