Nominate your Charnwood Community Heroes


Young Hero

Do you know a young person making a huge difference in the community?

We’re looking for young people (aged 18 and under) who are always happy to help others. It may be in a big or small way, organised or not, simply tell us the good deeds they have been doing.

Inspiring Others

We all need someone to motivate and inspire us from time to time!

The Inspiring Others category is for those heroes who always encourage people to do great things in the charity and voluntary sector. They are the ones who know how to get things done and lead by example.

Green Hero

From planting to recycling and everything to do with looking after our planet - we want to know who the Green Heroes are!

They could be involved in environmental projects or just spreading the word about living greener and more sustainable.

As long as there’s an environmental benefit, then they are a Green Hero so nominate them now!

Beyond the Call of Duty

Who in Charnwood always goes ‘Beyond the Call of Duty’?

This one is for the paid workers in the charity and voluntary sector. While volunteers are the life of the voluntary sector, there is still a need for paid, professional employees and this category is about recognising those who go above and beyond the call of duty.

Brilliant Board/Trustee Member

Charities and groups need those on the frontline but also those that offer some expertise behind the scenes.

This is what this category is for - those with experience who can lend a hand with the big issues. The work of board members and trustees is vital in an organisation in a project.

It’s all about team work at the end of the day!

Outstanding Contribution to mark 50 years of Charnwood

This year we are marking 50 years of Charnwood and we want to find those who have made the borough so special over that period.

The award is for those community stalwarts who turn out year on year and are worth their weight in gold.

This is a chance to say thank you to that special person for their outstanding contribution.
