Time to honour our own heroes

It’s that time of year again, when we invite you to honour our community heroes.

We are launching our New Year Honours Awards for 2012 – and calling on you to nominate our unsung stars.

Many people across our area work tirelessly for the benefit of others and we are giving you the chance to name those you believe deserve special recognition.

There is no age limit to those you can nominate and their good deeds can be anything from helping at a local club, encouraging ec0-campaigns and raising funds for charity to fetching the shopping for a neighbour or caring for a sick relative.

If you know someone who has gone the extra mile for the community – let us know. In the Advertiser each week we print articles about generous people who are raising funds for charity or doing their bit for others and the area.

To nominate your heroes fill out this coupon and send it to New Year Honours 2012, Eastwood & Kimberley Advertiser, c/o Sweet News, 51 Nottingham Road, Eastwood, Notts, NG16 3AN.

Nominations must be in by Monday, December 24.

Once we have our winners we will be holding a simple ceremony highlighting the work they do and will present them with certificates.

Following the presentation ceremony we will be printing a full list of award winners and pictures from the event.
