Tom Brake MP Launches Search For Local Heroes

April 1, 2005 12:01 AM

Tom Brake MP is urging Carshalton and Wallington residents to nominate their community's local heroes for recognition through the Nationwide Awards for Voluntary Endeavour.

Organised by Nationwide Building Society, in association with the National Council for Voluntary Organisations (NCVO) and the Newspaper Society, the awards are designed to reward and recognise the local heroes whose voluntary work or community activity has made a real difference to peoples' lives".

Tom Brake MP said,

"These awards recognise and reward the 'local heroes' in our community whose voluntary work or community activity has made a real difference to peoples' lives. Those who give up their free time to help others rarely ask for recognition but I believe they deserve it."

"This is your chance to nominate someone who you believe deserves an award and make sure their work is recognised. 2005 is the Year of the Volunteer and so it's especially important that we take the time to thank all the volunteers in our community."

Anybody wishing to nominate someone who deserves an award can pick up a leaflet containing a nomination form from their local branch of Nationwide Building Society, or the local public library. On-line nominations can also be made via
