Courier’s hunt for our lo­cal he­roes

West Lothian Courier - - News - Deb­bie Hall

We’re on the hunt for lo­cal he­roes to cel­e­brate the out­stand­ing work they do in their com­mu­ni­ties.

Do you know some­one who goes above and be­yond to help oth­ers or who makes a real dif­fer­ence to the lives of peo­ple they know?

The Courier has teamed up with The Cen­tre, Liv­ingston, to find West Loth­ian’s un­sung he­roes and we want to hear from read­ers who want to re­ward com­mu­nity cham­pi­ons for all their in­cred­i­ble ef­forts and hard work help­ing oth­ers.

Nom­i­nees can come from all walks of life and pre­vi­ous win­ners have in­cluded Al­li­son Barr, who set up the Jak’s Den char­ity in mem­ory of her son and Sean Carr, who pro­vides ther­a­peu­tic an­i­mals for peo­ple with spe­cial needs.

Read­ers can put any­one for­ward who makes a dif­fer­ence in their lives, whether it’s a char­ity worker, teacher, rel­a­tive, carer or just some­one who goes the ex­tra miles for oth­ers.

And ev­ery­one who is cho­sen will re­ceive a wellde­served £100 Gift Card to spend at The Cen­tre.

Courier ed­i­tor, Mar­jorie Kerr, said: “We’re de­lighted to have been able to re­ward so many lo­cal he­roes and want to give recog­ni­tion to even more.

“So if you know some­one who al­ways puts other peo­ple first then we would love to hear from you.”

Ash­ley Bis­land, deputy cen­tre di­rec­tor, at The Cen­tre, Liv­ingston added: “The Lo­cal Hero cam­paign has been a great suc­cess and has seen some big hearted peo­ple be­ing recog­nised for their hard work.

“We know there are oth­ers out their who de­serve to win this out­stand­ing award, which is why we are en­cour­ag­ing peo­ple in West Loth­ian to nom­i­nate their very own and ex­tra spe­cial Lo­cal Hero.”
