This year saw many ordinary people do extraordinary things to ensure the wellbeing and safety of our communities. As part of our work to connect with communities, and to honour their hard work and commitment, we have created an online portrait gallery showcasing community champions from across Wales.

Members of the Senedd were invited to nominate up to three champions from their constituencies or regions to be part of the gallery.

The portraits were published daily on the Visit the Senedd social media accounts, Senedd InstagramSenedd FacebookPierhead Twitter in November – December 2020.

The gallery was part of the GWLAD programme of virtual events hosted by the Senedd. The nominees include individuals, groups, key workers and businesses, who have done extraordinary things during Covid-19 to help the most vulnerable and keep communities together.

'Good-turn energy' is a translation of 'Egni Cymwynas', a poem by Ifor ap Glyn, the National poet of Wales written to accompany the gallery.
