Before lockdown Jamie volunteered day and night with the staff and community groups at Slough CVS, officers at Slough Borough Council and business leaders from across Berkshire, to co-found #OneSlough. There was no task too big or too small, as he gave all his time helping others plan for and cope with COVID-19. He was able to broker relationships between groups who had never worked together, inspire those who had never volunteered and lobby businesses to contribute with resources and in-kind support. He has made collections, connected people, motivated teams, and ensured no one was left out, representing the marginalised, whilst developing strategies with senior leaders to keep resources moving and reduce the spread of the virus.

Jamie prioritised the wellbeing of Slough and the need to work together. He embodies the ethos of what became known as #OneSlough – no branding, no organisation, working together for the shared good.

Congratulations for winning this well-deserved award Jamie, we at Slough CVS are all extremely proud and thankful for all your work for our community.

Messages of congratulations have poured in from across Slough.

Josie Wragg, Chief Executive at Slough Borough Council said: “Congratulations Jamie. You massively deserve this.”

Paul Britten, Chief Executive at Thames Valley Chamber of Commerce said: “Congratulations Jamie, a nomination that was stand out!”

Dominique Unsworth MBE, CEO & Producer – Resource Productions CIC, said: “Congrats Jamie, I’ve never seen anyone give so much time to others without any expectation of payment, reward or recognition. Proud to call you a colleague and friend. You deserve to win – but to YES Slough, Slough CVS and Slough Borough Council, you are already our hero.”

Janine Edwards, Safeguarding Partnerships Training and Development Manager at Slough Borough Council said: “Well done Jamie. This is thoroughly deserved. You have dedicated so much over the last 6 months to serve the vulnerable residents in Slough.”

Jamie Green said: “I am truly humbled to have won this award. To see the local authority, businesses, faith groups and the community come together during this crisis has been incredible and it is this, that I hope will be the legacy left in Slough; our ability to work together, overcome problems and turn them into solutions for the long term.”
