He explained: "It's quite naïve of me actually [but] I didn't know that national lottery gave away that amount of money a week and I didn't know that they also support some really grassroots charities that are doing some work that is quite personal to them [such as] going through a bereavement or loneliness."

"It was humbling because it made me realise 'oh I need to do a bit more in my community', because these guys are just like doing so much. That importance of community is just shown through these benches and that is what I think it's all about."

Jay built 12 benches to honour those who have been helping their local community during the pandemic

"I've always been a champion of a community, to me I'm just a glorified community worker that they put in front of a camera, first and foremost I always want to support my community, but it's sad that not everybody has that same kind of thinking, but now because of the pandemic we are recognising."

"Then you've got this lovely timber as the seat and […] on them you've got people's names and a quote that has come from them or their charity.

Jay opened up about the "humbling" experience of working with the charities

"Then there's something really special where you've got this a QR code that you scan and it takes you to the national lottery's good causes website and you can read about the charity, or you can go to an audio version of that so you can hear it.

"Then beside that we've got another plaque in braille, so if you're visually impaired or blind you can run your hands over it and you can read about the charity as well."

Among those being honoured are Sarah-Jane Piper and Michelle Thomson, whose BASIS (Blind and Sight Impaired Society) befriending service became a lifeline for visually impaired people in Essex.

Their specially crafted bench includes in-built dog bowls for guide dogs a QR code that will allow visitors to listen to Sarah-Jane and Michelle's story as well as a braille plaque of their story.
