So, who can be nominated for recognition?
Throughout the pandemic many people and organisations have risen to the challenge of supporting those in need. These people come from across our society and could include:
Those within the NHS not previously recognised such as Porters, Cleaners, Engineers, Catering or Administrative Staff.
Others beyond health services such as within Farming and Agriculture; Local businesses such as Food Shops; Chemists; those involved in Distribution, Haulage and Delivery of essential items.
Also included might be those involved in direct support of the COVID battle including the Armed Forces, Construction Companies delivering field hospitals or setting up Mobile Testing Centres.
We should not forget that local services such as Refuse Collection continued unabated as did Water, Electricity and Communications.
Many people continued to work in challenging circumstances including the Emergency Services, Funeral Directors as well as those within Care Homes.
In addition to this are the numerous local and regional charitable and voluntary organisations as well as individuals who have gone above and beyond the call of duty to help others.
The list is far larger and this event seeks to identify these unsung individuals who have not sought or received recognition. For more guidance on how to nominate someone, please use the contact form on this website.
