Mrs Parsons Recognised for setting up the Tonyrefail Cluster Packed Lunch Scheme

Tonyrefail & District Community Council 2020

We are very pleased to announce that Mrs Parsons has been awarded this prestigious award for leading a team that provided packed lunches for all the vulnerable children from Tonyrefail Community School cluster throughout the lockdown.

Nominations from the community show how caring and committed Leanne is “she always goes above and beyond and worked every single day making and delivering the packed lunches to those who needed them” says one nomination.

“She’s always helping others and always puts everyone else before herself, she is a credit to Tonyrefail Community School and a credit to our community” adds another.

Leanne’s tenacity was praised by one nomination who said “She tirelessly, hunted down sponsorships and providers, and set up a fantastic team, to ensure this was a success”.

However, the nomination that describes Leanne’s ethos was “She’s gone beyond helpful for our children during the pandemic as she does in the normal environment”.

The project was highlighted in the by the BBC’s The Great Indoors, when Shane Williams surprised the team by dropping in to see what they were doing. You can view the video here.

Well done Leanne and thank you for the commitment and dedication you show every day in supporting and protecting our pupils.
