Seeking out unsung heroes

Wandsworth residents are being urged to put the spotlight on unsung local heroes by nominating them for a Wandsworth Civic Award.

The awards are a way of saying thank you to local people who have volunteered their services over a long period of time to help others, including charity workers, community activists or just someone who acts as a helping hand to friends or neighbours - anyone whose tireless voluntary work has made a difference to the area.

Wandsworth Council is calling for nominations from all corners of the borough for the 2013 awards, so that anyone and everyone who deserves to be given a pat on the back for dedicating their time to helping others are acknowledged.

Putting someone forward for an award is easy. Send the nominee's name, phone number and email address, plus your name and contact details, and full details of why they deserve an award to the council before October 11.

To email a nomination, send it to civicawards@wandsworth.gov.uk or post it to Wandsworth Civic Awards, Room 144, Wandsworth Town Hall, Wandsworth High Street, London SW18 2PU.
