From the Westmorland Gazette:
A KENDAL woman has been highlighted for her community participation during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Faith Action invited Jacquetta Gomes to join their Buddhist and Women’s Interfaith Focus Groups during Covid-19. The main points raised in these meetings are sent to the Ministry for Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) to be fed into the government’s Places of Worship Task Force by Faith Action.
She also received an invitation to be a speaker in Faith Action’s Coffee House in September.
Faith Action Coffee House: Meeting outdoors and in community centres. She spoke about BGKT Buddhist Group of Kendal (Theravada)’s public open meetings at Castle Street Centre Kendal.
This month, Faith Action also donated a mug to Jacquetta to thank her for her contributions and participation. The mug states “In the morning coffee is too important to skip. In life faith is too important to ignore.
As secretary of the Buddhist Group of Kendal, she also represented minority faiths on the South Lakeland Hub Recovery Group after Storm Desmond in 2015.
The experience she gained in the group led to her being invited to join the Cumbria BSP Bereavement Support Partnership Group during the Covid-19 pandemic. She is the Lead for Interfaith and Multifaith for South Lakeland Equality and Diversity Partnership (SLEDP) and represented them on the Kendal ICC Integrated Care Community.
