Sammy Hartstein

Sammy is 16 years old and has been a regular volunteer for the Buckfastleigh Response team, helping deliver food parcels for the food bank. He has donned his face mask and gloves and carried heavy boxes of groceries to people who needed support, often in hot weather. As well as delivering food, he has delivered books to help shielded people with their lockdown boredom. He has done all of this whilst coping with the death of his grandma, the loneliness of lockdown, and uncertainty around his GCSEs. - Nominated by Helen Hartstein
