Vote for your Her­ald Cit­i­zen of the Year

The Herald (South Africa) - - FRONT PAGE - Her­ald Re­porter

THEY are as di­verse as they are impressive, but this year’s The Her­ald Cit­i­zen of the Year fi­nal­ists all have one thing in com­mon – an un­wa­ver­ing love of the com­mu­ni­ties in which they live and work.

The four fi­nal­ists in the open cat­e­gory and two in the youth cat­e­gory were se­lected af­ter a lengthy nom­i­na­tion and judg­ing process. They work with the ter­mi­nally ill, chil­dren and the des­ti­tute, but whether the fi­nal­ists are young or more ma­ture, hold a PhD or are un­em­ployed, they are all leav­ing lega­cies that will ben­e­fit the com­mu­ni­ties around them.

The fi­nal­ists in the open cat­e­gory are Les­ley Law­son, Lukholo Badi, Trudi Bas­son and Fezile Dolupi.

The youth cat­e­gory fi­nal­ists are Lumka Cube and Duwayne Put­ter.

From to­day un­til Oc­to­ber 16, read­ers will be given the op­por­tu­nity to vote for their favourite fi­nal­ist via SMS. Look out for the ad­verts in The Her­ald to see your favourite’s vot­ing num­ber.

Win­ners will be an­nounced at a gala event at the Radis­son Blu ho­tel on Oc­to­ber 27.
