Local Foodbank Supervisor Named as First Culver Cares Award Winner

News — Local Foodbank Supervisor Named as First Culver Cares Award Winner


Culver Square Shopping Centre name supervisor of Colchester Foodbank as the first deserving winner in their Culver Cares campaign to highlight local heroes.

Nikki Ranson was nominated by her daughter Aimee and has been selected as the first winner. She is currently working as the supervisor at Colchester Foodbank while juggling being a single mum of five children, two of which have additional needs. 

Last February she was diagnosed with cancer and has undergone twelve months of treatment with two major surgeries. During her recovery, she continued to work from home and returned to work as soon as possible to carry on supporting the team and the community. 

According to her daughter, “She doesn’t take praise very well as she feels it’s her passion to help not a job. She works 7 days a week 24/7. Nothing is too much trouble for her. Her colleagues would totally agree that she is an unsung hero in the eyes of many.”

Nikki is someone who is dedicated to serving her community and helping others despite what is going on in her own life.

Centre Manager, David Robertson, of Culver Square said: “I found it a great pleasure to work together with Nikki over the last two year on the Giving Tree Campaign. Where I experienced first-hand the selfless dedication she gives to the families supported by the foodbank. We are so proud to offer the chance to recognise key members of our local community with this award.”

Each month, Culver Square is rewarding one person or group in Colchester who has gone above and beyond within the community. The well-deserving recipient will be awarded with a “Culver Cares” certificate and gift as a reward for their efforts showcased across Culver Square’s website and social media.

Nikki Ranson was nominated by her daughter Aimee Greatorex. If you know someone who has community spirit head to the Culver Square website and complete the Culver Cares form. What classes as community spirit is open to interpretation. In essence, anything where the nominee has gone above and beyond to help those around them. This could be supporting young people or the elderly, volunteering or raising money for charity, the list is endless.
