A POLLOK ‘superwoman’ who worked tirelessly to support the vulnerable during Covid has been honoured with her very own street art mural.

Donna Foote is one of only three women across the UK to be celebrated in Amazon Handmade’s #TheArtofMotherhood series, commissioned in time for Mother’s Day this Sunday.

It aims to recognise those ‘mothering the nation’ by caring for their communities over the past 12 months.

The 52-year-old, who has five children, was recognised for her work in founding Greater Pollok Services CIC, an organisation which offers food, prescriptions and mental health support for people living in Greater Pollok.

When lockdown began, Donna recruited and trained volunteers, set up services to transport vulnerable people to hospital and established a befriending service for those who were shielding.

She also organised donations for the vulnerable to ensure her community felt supported by one of their own.

Donna said: “It came naturally to me to help those in need in Greater Pollok; to take action and make actual change was something so close to my heart.

“Mother’s Day is a recognition of compassion, kindness and community, qualities which we hope to promote through our fantastic project. It’s incredible to be honoured with this mural in Glasgow, and I hope it highlights that anyone can make a difference if they pull up their sleeves and put their mind to it.”

Donna’s mural, painted by Molly Hankinson, can be seen on Eastvale Place in Finnieston, part of SWG3’s area dedicated to street art and graffiti.

She was honoured alongside Professor Alka Surajprakash Ahuja from Cardiff, who helped to digitalise NHS Wales in a matter of weeks after lockdown was announced, to ensure patients could still access professional medical help, and Jonelle Awomoyi from London, who passionately campaigned, mentored and lectured on issues that affect young people in Croydon and beyond.

Daron Manso of Amazon Handmade said: “We’re inspired by the work Donna, Alka and Jonelle have done over the last 12 months and are excited to work with local artists to celebrate their stories.”
