Who are your heroes?
UNSUNG heroes from across the Staffordshire Moorlands are to be honoured for their efforts
Courageous children, carers and charity fund-raisers are just some of the people set to be recognised by a new community awards for the Staffordshire Moorlands.
The Post and Times and Staffordshire Moorlands District Council have joined forces to launch Moorlands Heroes, and we’re calling on our readers to put forward people from within their community.
Each week we will be telling the stories of our nominees, with shortlisted groups and individuals invited to a glittering awards evening at Alton Towers in January 2019.

They should include their name and contact telephone number, plus the details of the person they would like to put forward, and preferably, a recent photo.
