Telford & Wrekin Hero Awards

Telford & Wrekin Council (TWC) launched the Telford & Wrekin Hero Awards yesterday (3 August), allowing people to nominate “local heroes” who have made a difference to their communities.

According to TWC’s Newsroom post, the awards are a way of celebrating “all those local heroes who have shown kindness and amazing community spirit during the COVID-19 pandemic”.

Nominations can be made to one of six different categories:

  1. Volunteer
  2. Volunteer Group
  3. Good Neighbour
  4. Unsung Hero
  5. Community Support Group
  6. Young Carer

“There will be no winners or losers”, the Newsroom post adds.

Once verified, nominees will receive a certificate of recognition for their work and kindness from both Cllr Amrik Jhawar, Mayor of the Borough of Telford & Wrekin, and Cllr Shaun Davies, Leader of Telford & Wrekin Council.

In order to nominate someone for an award, visit the Telford Community Pride Awards website and fill in the nomination form. If you’d rather have a paper form, they are available from Oakengates Theatre reception, Monday to Friday, from 10am to 4pm.
