Local Hero Awards: Nominate your Community Stars
March 30, 2015

Edinburgh Evening News has just launched the second edition of Local Hero Awards – a feel good event celebrating unsung heroes living in Edinburgh and the Lothians.

Anyone can nominate their colleagues, friends and family who make Edinburgh and Lothians what it is today in one of 14 categories including specifically ‘Health Champion’ which is being sponsored by ELHF. The champion will be someone who has improved people’s health and/or made an impact on the quality of life of an individual. They may work in the NHS or health care industry, providing a service above and beyond the call of duty, taking personal responsibility for a persons wellbeing. 

Categories include health and well-being issues, healthy lifestyles and exercise in the community etc and details of all 14 categories are available at http://www.localheroaward.co.uk/ along with details of how to make your nominations. 

The closing date for receipt of nominations is 5th May 2015 and the Awards ceremony will be held on 5th June 2015 in the Assembly Rooms in George Street to honour the winners.
