Many young people under the age of 16 make an excellent contribution to their communities and this award recognises the importance of young people in our region.


Public Sector Hero

Someone who works in the public sector and has gone that extra mile to help others or have used their skills to assist or improve their environment.


Charity Fundraiser of the Year

This amateur fundraiser need not have raised the most money but will be judged on innovative fundraising methods and their personal efforts involved.


Education Hero of the Year

This award will recognise an individual who works in the education sector from the Governor to a site manager and everyone in between. This person will have gone above and beyond in the last year.

Volunteer of the Year
