Nominate local heroes for a Wandsworth Civic Award

Published: Friday 4th August 17

The Wandsworth Civic Awards are a way of saying thank you to local people who have volunteered their services over a long period of time to help others

Last year's winners with the previous Mayor of Wandsworth, Cllr Richard Field

The awards are run by the Mayor of Wandsworth and shine the spotlight on unsung local heroes, including charity workers, community activists or just someone who acts as a helping hand to friends or neighbours - anyone whose tireless work has made a difference to the area.

Last year’s winners included Sid Khan from the Earlsfield Boxing Club, Sheila Hill for her contribution to local history and heritage, Shakeel Ahmed Syed, who has supported numerous causes in Tooting, and the Wandsworth Parent Champions who raise awareness of support available to families with disabled children.

Mayor of Wandsworth, Councillor Jim Maddan, said: “We want to hear about people who are the backbone of their local community, but whose work would otherwise go unrewarded. Let’s shine a spotlight on our local Wandsworth heroes, and make sure their efforts get the recognition they deserve.”
