Slough Modest Sisters have been supporting women suffering domestic violence during lockdown, where they can talk about their hardships and personal experiences through social media, email and phone. The group has more than 2,800 members on Facebook and were busy supporting the community during the first coronavirus lockdown – with volunteers helping with essential shopping and delivering prescriptions to the vulnerable and elderly during the coronavirus lockdown through #One Slough. They also used their ‘Your Friend in Need’ service to help motivational workshops and online fitness.
The group have now been nominated for the Covid Hero award at the 2021 edition of the SHE Awards UK for their work for women and the wider community during the pandemic. Wishing them the best of luck!
