To mark a year since the first lockdown, a Leamington restaurateur wants to say a special thank you to local unsung heroes who have made a positive difference in their community.

Through his new Local Legends Campaign, Jose Ribeiro, of We Love Pizza, aims to reward six people who live or work in the Warwickshire, area, with a feast of pizza.

Between May and October, each winner will be presented with a WLP voucher for £120 to be used throughout the following month.

It might be someone who has gone that extra mile to help their isolated neighbours, launched an initiative to help emergency workers or made a huge difference to an individual’s life by a simple – but significant – act of kindness.

Jose, whose restaurant has been closed more than open since it launched in September last year, wants to give something back to the community that has supported his business throughout those months.

He said: “We are so grateful for the kindness and support that’s been shown at such difficult times, both to everyone in general and the hospitality industry.

“We are passionate about celebrating our local legends and highlighting the kindness, courage, humanity or ingenuity they have shown during the Coronavirus pandemic. These are core values that are very close to our brand and ethos and we hope will make us better as a society for the future.”
