Still time to honour unsung heroes

Published: 9 October 2015

Do you know an unsung local hero? You have until midnight on Monday (October 12) to nominate them for a 2015 Wandsworth Civic Award.

The awards are run by the Mayor of Wandsworth as 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 include Putney pub landlady Becky Newman for her charity fund-raising, Jon Stanton for his work for the charity Back Up, Belleville School governor Kate Amis, prominent Rotarian Liz Shaw and Lynn Evans who has dedicated herself to the Missing People charity. Read more about last year’s winners.

How to nominate: 

Your nomination must include the nominee's name, phone number and email address, plus your name and contact details, and details of why they deserve an award.

Finalists chosen from the nominations will be invited to attend a special award ceremony at the town hall in November.
