Who are Your He­roes? Time to tell us ...

Ormskirk Advertiser - - Front Page -

THE search is on for Your He­roes 2018 and we want to hear who you think should be named School of the Year.

We have once again teamed up with the Scot­tishPower Foun­da­tion to launch this year’s Your He­roes awards, to give recog­ni­tion to the peo­ple who give so self­lessly for oth­ers.

The Scot­tish Power Foun­da­tion is the of­fi­cial spon­sor of the awards, sup­port­ing the glit­ter­ing event to be held on Wed­nes­day, Jan­uary 24 at the Ra­mada Plaza Ho­tel, in South­port, when our short­listed nom­i­nees will be in­vited to a spe­cial night of cel­e­bra­tion.

Scot­tishPower launched the foun­da­tion to re­in­force the en­ergy com­pany’s com­mit­ment to char­i­ta­ble work through­out Britain. Its aim is to make a sig­nif­i­cant and last­ing con­tri­bu­tion to so­ci­ety and en­hance the qual­ity of life in lo­cal com­mu­ni­ties.

Now we need you to nom­i­nate a com­mu­nity hero who you think de­serves re­ward for their out­stand­ing con­tri­bu­tion.

We are look­ing for nom­i­na­tions in five cat­e­gories: Per­son of the Year. Young per­son of the Year. Team of the Year. Sportsper­son of Year. School of the Year. Last year’s school ti­tle was won by Christ the King Catholic High School in South­port, with the judges hugely im­pressed by its char­i­ta­ble ef­forts.

Pupils and staff at the school were so moved by the work of the Queen­scourt hospice that they made it their ded­i­cated fundrais­ing mis­sion and raised nearly £18,000 in just two years.

But who will win this year?

There are so many won­der­ful things done on be­half of our chil­dren so if you want to make sure a de­serv­ing school gets its recog­ni­tion, send in your nom­i­na­tion.

An­drew Brown, ed­i­tor of the South­port Visiter and Orm­skirk Ad­ver­tiser series of ti­tles, said: “Nom­i­nat­ing is easy. So, if you know some­one who de­serves a Your He­roes award, please send your en­tries to us to­day.

“Please help us to say ‘thank you’ to a school which re­ally de­serves it.”

Nom­i­na­tions are now open and will close on Fri­day, De­cem­ber 15. the
