Nineteen years ago The News began its We Can Do It campaign to celebrate the unsung heroes within our community – and it is still going strong today.
Today the ethos of We Can Do It remains the same and we are proud to celebrate those who go the extra mile for others for no reward. The News We Can Do It Awards are our way of making sure the good news of these acts of kindness and selflessness are recognised and rewarded.
Through the year we receive nominations from our readers for their unsung heroes in our area. To recognise, reward and celebrate these wonderful people we will be holding an awards ceremony on Monday December 3 2018. at a venue to be confirmed.
Everyone is welcome to send in their story of a selfless act that they know helped others within their family or community.
We are looking for those of any age or walk of life. Look carefully at the categories below. You are sure to know someone who deserves to receive one of our trophies.
