Courier’s hunt for our local heroes
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.”
