Charnwood Community Heroes awards, run by Charnwood Borough Council, are a chance to thank local people who have carried out a good deed – no matter how small or large – in our community.

It could be someone who has helped a neighbour, raised funds, looked at their neighbourhood or is always there for others.

In 2024, there are six categories to enter.


  • Outstanding Contribution to mark 50 years of Charnwood
  • Young Hero (sponsored by Serco)
  • Inspiring Others (sponsored by Idverde)
  • Green Hero (sponsored by Serco)
  • Beyond the Call of Duty
  • Brilliant Board/Trustee Member (sponsored by 1284)

The Harry Cook award will also be presented during an award ceremony later in the year. The award is decided by Harry's family from all nominations and will be presented in memory of the Loughborough in Bloom stalwart.

This year's Charnwood Community Heroes is a part of the borough’s 50th anniversary celebrations.

Thank you to our category sponsors for their support.
