Any Heroes Out There? TOM BRAKE MP LAUNCHES SEARCH FOR LOCAL HEROES

March 28, 2006 5:32 PM

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,

"We all know a 'local hero' - someone who works hard for the community in a voluntary capacity. This award will give them the recognition they deserve."

"This is your chance to nominate the family member or friend who you believe deserves an award and make sure their work is recognised. The closing date for nominations is 28th April 2006."

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 www.nationwide.co.uk/about_nationwide/community_relations/awards/nom_form.asp

Further details

1. There are four award categories:

• Young people under 18 as individuals

    Send us your views

    If you are a resident of the Carshalton and Wallington constituency and are writing to discuss any issue that Parliament or government is responsible for, you must provide your home address as MPs are generally only permitted to act on behalf of constituents.

    If you are not a constituent, you do not need to provide your address, but the matters we can deal with are more limited and you may wish to contact your local MP in the first instance.

    • If you agree, Tom Brake MP, the Liberal Democrats, and their elected representatives may use the information you provide to contact you about issues you may find of interest. Some of the contacts may be automated. You can opt out of these contacts at any time by contacting us.
