REBECCA Page is one in a million, juggling her job as a hard-working community nurse with bringing up two little ones - with a third on the way in July.

We asked our readers if they knew someone who had gone the extra mile during the pandemic - someone worthy of being hailed as one of our Community Champions.

Proud husband Charlie dropped us a line to tell us about Rebecca's amazing contribution to community nursing in Witham, Braintree and Halstead.

The 29-year-old lives in Colchester and has been a nurse since 2016.

She is a community nurse, essentially going to patients' houses and caring for them in any way necessary, from giving insulin injections to changing dressings.

She also supports end-of-life patients.

Rebecca works mainly around the Witham area but has also covered Braintree and Halstead.

"She's coped amazingly during the pandemic," said Charlie.

"The community nursing teams are very stretched and have so much work on, but take it in their stride.

"I'm so proud of my wife but would also like to say well done to all community nurses.

"It's important to shine a light on them for everything they do with regards to care outside of the hospital."

In addition to her nursing, Charlie says his wife is also a brilliant mother to Ruby, four, and Harry, two.

The couple's third baby is due in July.

"Rebecca's a hard-working nurse who attends to all her patients and makes sure their needs are met," he said.

"While this job is very demanding, she's brining up our two beautiful children.

"She gives them all her energy and attention and not only is she juggling a demanding job with two very active children, she's doing it while five months pregnant.

"This is why Rebecca is the best mum in the world and, in my eyes, a true Community Champion."
