COAST 2 COAST COMMUNITY ABOVE & BEYOND AWARD With so many individuals & businesses going the extra mile for their communities during the Lockdown Coast 2 Coast invited their readers and followers to nominate their own hero/heroine/company or organisation for the “Coast 2 Coast Above & Beyond Award”
AND THE WINNERs WERE….ADRIAN & PALOMA COCKINGS of Corona Virus Information Spain! Each day since the beginning of lockdown, Adrian has been presenting a live video on the Corona Virus Information Spain Facebook Page. He and his Spanish wife Paloma have worked tirelessly for no financial gain to provide the non- Spanish speaking community with translated and up to date information from the Spanish Government in relation to the State of Alarm and lockdown regulations. This whilst adjusting to family life with their first baby, Lily who was born just before the lockdown. For many, they have provided a lifeline and the gratitude that has been shown towards them in the messages we have received has been both overwhelming and emotional. Since announcing the award nominations Coast 2 Coast said they have received literally thousands of messages, social media comments & emails from all over the world including Australia. Adrian & Paloma were clear winners by a considerable margin in terms of the number of nominations
