surroundings or highlight green issues.
Carer of the Year

There are so many carers in our
society, looking after sick or disabled relatives, neighbours or friends. There are people
who do caring things for others, shopping for the elderly, giving their time to help those
less fortunate, or putting themselves out for the good of their community.
Community Champion of the
Year sponsored by St Marks School
There are many people who give
up their time to work to make a difference in their community. From people who volunteer
in local organisations to those who pick up litter or maintain public green spaces. They

This special award will be
given to an individual of any age who has responded to an immediate need and significantly

someone who has showed tremendous heroism in an emergency, or someone who is incredibly
brave in the face of adversity.

communities struggling for the basic necessities of life. Our charity fundraiser or

charitable cause. This award recognises people who have made an exceptional effort to
advance the profile and raise funds for a particular concern. This volunteer will give

scheme in school or someone who braves all weathers to stand on the streets to collect
cash for local appeals.

young people down. There are many remarkable youngsters in the community who deserve to be

these youngsters work hard. We are looking for a young person under the age of 18 who has
done something inspirational and who deserves recognitions.
