Chance to nom­i­nate ex­cep­tional cit­i­zens

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - OPINION -

WE’RE urg­ing com­mu­ni­ties across Bri­tain to hon­our ‘or­di­nary’ peo­ple do­ing ex­tra­or­di­nary things by nom­i­nat­ing them for a new na­tional award.

The Bri­tish Cit­i­zen Awards (BCA) recog­nises ex­cep­tional in­di­vid­u­als who work tire­lessly and self­lessly to make a pos­i­tive im­pact upon so­ci­ety.

Suc­cess­fully launched in Jan­uary this year, the in­au­gu­ral BCA cer­e­mony saw 28 peo­ple hon­oured at a pres­ti­gious cer­e­mony hosted by Baroness Cox at the Palace of West­min­ster.

Nom­i­na­tions are cur­rently be­ing ac­cepted for the next round of medal pre­sen­ta­tions, which will take place on July 9 2015, again at the Palace of West­min­ster. All BCA re­cip­i­ents re­ceive a Medal of Hon­our, in­scribed with the words ‘For the Good of the Coun­try’.
