The first winner was Roy Nussey who was nominated by his loving daughter, Karen Shaw. Roy is known for his dedication to the local community and his church, as well as having such a selfless heart when it comes to caring for others. Karen chose to donate £100 to Tameside Animal Shelter.

Greg Deakin was the second nominee to receive a Christmas hamper and donation. Greg was nominated by his partner, Kerry Bradley, for his selfless acts of kindness and continuous help for everyone around him through difficult times. The second £100 donation went to end of life care charity, Willow Wood.
