My Prospa Local Business Hero nomination

Anna from Nelson South

I would like to nominate Sweet As Cafe in Nelson. Their food is always excellent and their coffee also. Staff are always friendly and have a smile even when they extremely busy and under pressure to get food/drinks out to customers. I also like the fact they always use my name when I go there

Tell us about the coronavirus lockdown champions in your community

The Team Reporter from Stuff

Hey neighbours,

We want to celebrate the unsung heroes who are keeping our country going through lockdown.

Frontline nurse Debra Larsen's life has turned into a "real whirlwind" since the coronavirus outbreak began.

She's been so busy setting up testing centres around the Waikato. and helping them run smoothly that she's barely seen her two teenage daughters.

Do you know a coronavirus lockdown champion who deserves to be recognised? Tell us about them in the comments below.
