Please see below for a message from the Birmingham Mail:
During the year the Birmingham Mail gives out Local Heroes Awards.
We’re now looking for nominations for a “Community hero”.
This is essentially somebody who has done something special, selfless or extraordinary for the people in their area.
This could be charity work, campaigning for an important local cause or simply helping others where they live.
If you know anybody who may be worthy of this award please let us know.
Send a description (no more than 200 words) of who the person is and why they should be recognised with an award. These should be sent to Will.Oliphant@trinitymirror.com.
Winners are featured in the Birmingham Mail, invited to an awards dinner as a guest of the newspaper and I believe their is a small cash prize too.
We are looking for nominations asap so get your thinking caps on folks!
Birmingham Post and Mail, Sunday Mercury
Hopefully some nominations will be sent in for Digbeth – we have many residents who perform valuable local services, such as run bike rides, shops and even pubs, while contributing the local community.
