Hanson Backs Search for Local Heroes

Delyn MP David Hanson has backed this year’s Nationwide Community and Heritage Awards and is inviting people in Delyn to nominate people or groups who deserve recognition for community or voluntary work that has made a real difference to people’s lives.


Nominations for the very best and most inspirational volunteers in the UK can made for either:


  • Community Champion – recognition for those who have made an impact in their local community
  • Heritage Hero – recognition for those who have volunteered to become involved in saving a part of their heritage and sharing it with others.


The awards were previously known as the Nationwide Awards for Voluntary Endeavour (NAVE) and had a very successful ten year history recognising over 13,000 people from across the country. The new Nationwide and Heritage Lottery Fund Partnership will enable more unsung heroes to be recognised for their tremendous achievements.


Winners will be chosen from across 12 regions in the UK, for young people, adults and groups. Eighteen of these regional winners will be announced as national finalists later in the year, with a national event and a Parliamentary reception scheduled to take place in November.


David Hanson said:


“Volunteers play a very important role in our communities and make a difference to the quality of live for others. These awards are a good opportunity for the hardworking volunteers in Flintshire to get recognition they deserve.


“I would encourage people in Flintshire who know anyone locally, or any local group, that is making a real difference to the local community to make a nomination.”
