Time to nominate your Wirral Golden Globes
3:10pm Monday 2nd September 2013 in News
DO you know someone who goes that extra mile for others?
Maybe they're a neighbour who goes out of their way to make your life a little easier or perhaps or a young hero who shows courage or bravery.
They might be the best mum or dad despite setbacks or adversity or maybe they have made a real difference to their local community.
That's right, it's time for this year's Wirral Golden Globes – a chance to heap praise on our unsung heroes and recognise their efforts.
The awards ceremony, which takes place on Wednesday, November 27 at the Floral Pavilion, is a chance to celebrate the achievements of our community champions in Wirral and now we are asking you to nominate your heroes.
The categories are:
- Foster Carer of the Year
- Neighbour of the Year
- Parent of the Year
- Sportsperson of the Year
- Young Hero of the Year
- Contribution to the Community
- Volunteer of the Year
- Adult Learner of the Year
Last year's glittering event saw a whole host of celebrities showing their support including Great British Bake Off star Paul Hollywood, comedian Stan Boardman, singer Steve McFarlane, renowned journalist and poet Peter Grant and country singer Charlie Landsborough.
Former Brookside actress Suzanne Collins and Desperate Scousewives star Jaiden Michael also presented awards while Frankie Goes to Hollywood singer/guitarist Brian 'Nasher' Nash gave a powerful solo rendition of the band’s 1984 number one smash hit The Power of Love.
Miss Northwest 2012 Stephanie Hodson was also on hand to add a touch of glamour to the occasion with top radio Merseyside presenter Roger Lyon hosting the evening.
And this year's event is shaping up to rival last year as plans are already underway to secure support from big names.
Once again, we're proud to be backing our local children’s hospice Claire House as we donate all money raised on the night to the Bebington-based charity.
