BBC Radio Lancashire Community Heroes Awards

The BBC Radio Lancashire Community Heroes Awards 2019 are now closed. The shortlist will be revealed on BBC Radio Lancashire over the summer.”

We want to celebrate the wonderful people of Lancashire
John Clayton, Editor, BBC Radio Lancashire

The idea of the awards is to recognise unsung heroes from across the county, with entries being sought in a variety of categories. They are designed to reflect everything from good neighbours to voluntary work.

Nominations will be judged by a panel led by BBC Radio Lancashire's Managing Editor, John Clayton. John says:

"We want to celebrate the wonderful people of Lancashire and the amazing work so many do in the local community. We hope our listeners get behind our Community Heroes Awards and nominate someone who means something to them, for whatever reason.

"We know there will be some real heart-warming stories out there and we'll feature the best nominees on-air in the run up to the ceremony."
