BBC Local Radio has created a new award campaign to celebrate people who are going above and beyond to make a difference in our communities.
The awards are a chance to say “Thank You” and show recognition and appreciation for people who love to make life better for others.
There are 8 categories of awards:
Volunteer – Awarded to an individual who makes a real difference to the community by giving up their time voluntarily to help out a charity or good cause.
Community Group – Awarded to a group of people who have helped to genuinely change the lives of others within the community
Fundraiser – Awarded to an individual or group of people who have gone the extra mile to raise funds for a charity or good cause.
Carer – Awarded to someone who improves the life of an individual or group of people by caring for them on a regular basis.
Great Neighbour – Awarded to an individual or group of people who help to make the neighbourhood or local community a better place to live or work, either on a regular basis or through a single act of kindness.
Key Worker – Awarded to a key worker who’s gone above and beyond their call of duty to help others.
Environmental Award – Awarded to an individual or group of people who help to make where we live more environmentally friendly.
The Together Award – Awarded to an individual or group of people who create real change by breaking down barriers and bringing together people from different walks of life for a common cause.
You can nominate anyone of any age or any community group, however, you must be aged 18 or over to submit a nomination.
Nominations close on Friday 29 April 2022 at 11pm.
Winners will be selected by a panel of judges and awards will be given in each category, across each local BBC radio station.
