Last chance to nominate unsung heroes

Published: 30 September 2014

There’s still time to nominate an unsung local hero for a 2014 Wandsworth Civic Award, but hurry - the deadline for nominations is October 10.

The 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, 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 (pictured right), included Marlene Price who represents the interests of the borough’s 33,000 tenants and leaseholders, Johnny Devas who chairs the trust that runs the Devas Club for young people in Battersea, Katherine Low Settlement trustee Keith Chapman, Shirley Price who organises community events in Roehampton, Rupert Payne from the West Indian Family and Friends Association and George Turner, who runs the Carney’s Community boxing club (see their full stories).

This year we have made it easier than ever to nominate. Simply fill in our online form telling us why you think someone deserves the award.
