TOWNSVILLETOW res­i­dents are be­ing urged to nom­i­nate an un­sung hero in the fight against do­mes­tic and fam­ily vi­o­lence.

The Sky Foun­da­tion, which raises vi­tal funds for the Townsville Womens Cen­tre, will give away a hot lap to say thank you to one lo­cal per­son who has gone above and be­yond to help oth­ers.

The hot lap was do­nated by Payce, which is owned by prop­erty devel­oper and revhead Brian Boyd, and a spon­sor of the V8 Su­per­cars Wil­son Se­cu­rity Rac­ing team.

Foun­da­tion com­mit­tee mem­ber Roanne Boldery said the com­pany had been a big sup­porter of their cause.

“We want to say thank you to some­one who has helped oth­ers fac­ing fam­ily or do­mes­tic vi­o­lence in our com­mu­nity,” she said. “That could be some­one who goes the ex­tra mile to help lo­cal char­i­ties that as­sist peo­ple deal­ing with do­mes­tic or fam­ily vi­o­lence, or have taken vic­tims into their own home.

“The nom­i­nee could nom­i­nate some­one who has helped them through such a cri­sis.”

Nom­i­na­tions can be made via the Sky Foun­da­tion Face­book page, with the win­ner to be an­nounced to­mor­row.
