Mum makes video plea to people living in Covid-hit Staffordshire town to help prevent spread of coronavirus



A charity worker has made a plea to people living in a Covid-hit Staffordshire town to help prevent the spread of coronavirus.

Rubena Kashwar, who lives in Branston, near Burton on Trent, has recorded a video to emphasize the importance of abiding by government guidelines.

It comes after 131 cases of coronavirus were reported in the Anglesey, Shobnall, Horninglow and Eton Park wards of Burton between July 4 and August 31.

The mum-of-one said: “I have never done a video or public speaking but I wanted to do something where I can get the word out there and make people listen.

“I have a lot friends in the affected areas and I want to make sure my friends and family are safe.

“I hope people watching the video can relate to me and really listen to the message in the video.

“The virus is still out there and people need to realise this and my job to create awareness in the communities.

“Those who know me know that I like to help people and will always do something people can benefit from, so that’s why I am confident people will take the advice on board.

“Even if one person listens to the video and decides to take my advice, I will be very happy as one person can help to stop the spread and one person can help to extend it.”

Rubena set up the Shabir Shah Foundation in 2017 in memory of her father, Shabir Shah, and is regularly involved in charitable projects in Burton.
