Would you like to nominate local heroes who have gone above and beyond the call of duty during this challenging year?

Would you like to nominate local heroes who have gone above and beyond the call of duty during this challenging year?

THE leaders of the Community Church are hosting a 2020 Local Heroes Award in December – and are looking for nonimations!

Dave Gregg, one of the organisers of the church, based in Southport said: “Times have been tough for many with the Covid-19 crisis and we want to share some good news and encouragements with our local community – we also have many people from, Ormskirk, Skelmersdale and the West Lancashire area.

“We are looking for people to nominate local heroes who have gone above and beyond the call of duty during this challenging year – a teacher, nurse, community worker, care assistant,shop keeper, Macmillan nurse, the person who delivered meals, cakes or goodies to the needy, anyone who went the extra mile to bring some support, hope and encouragement to people in our area. 

“Each person nominated will receive a small gift from us acknowledging and thanking them for all they have done. In addition there will be some other prizes for some of the ‘standout nominations.’ We are donating £200 worth of gift Christmas hampers and  already local businesses have donated their sponsorship and awards - gardening services, certificates for gardening services and haircuts, a local restaurant gave us a Breakfast Brunch for four people, a swimming school offering lessons and we are sure other firms will want to partner and sponsor with us.”
