I co-ordinate the events here at the Nottingham Post, and I wanted to draw your attention to the fact nominations are now open for our Nottingham Post Heroes Awards 2017 in partnership with Boots.
The Nottingham Post Heroes Awards 2017 in partnership with Boots, celebrates the achievements of truly remarkable people who make our community a better place. Hosted at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in October, it is the biggest awards show of its kind in Nottingham. Once again this year, we are on a search for Nottingham’s finest. Covering categories such as Volunteer of the Year, Community Champion, Child of Courage, Armed Forces plus many more. Nominations can be from all walks of life, of all ages, and from all over the region.
They say they are ordinary people, but their acts are truly extraordinary. It may be for a single act of incredible courage, a long-lasting battle against the odds, or for inspirational campaigning.
You can nominate an individual or a group, simply by logging onto www.heroesawards.co.uk clicking on the Nomination Form tab and completing the form.
After the closing date, three finalists will be shortlisted in each category by an independent judging panel, who will consider every public nomination received. We will then be recognising and celebrating the achievements and outstanding bravery of such individuals at a glittering awards ceremony at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, Wollaton Street, Nottingham on Wednesday, October 11, 2017. The evening will commence at 6:45pm with a red carpet drinks reception followed by a three course dinner and then the awards.
The official hashtag for the campaign is #NPHeroes

I started working at Mansfield CVS aged just 18, initially as an admin apprentice studying a level 2 NVQ and later progressing to doing a “Higher” apprenticeship (NVQ level 3). It was my first job and when I began working here I had very low self-confidence and no practical work experience at all! Due to the nature of the work, helping other charities in the local area, and the lovely people I work with, I soon discovered I really enjoy working in the charity sector and would be very happy to have a career in it – something I had never considered prior to joining MCVS.
