Chapter Three – Shine a Light


Shine a Light banner

Do you know someone that has gone the extra mile to help during the Coronavirus pandemic?

Help us Shine a Light on heroes in Bellamy Road (Mansfield), Clay Cross, Leamington (Ashfield), and South Normanton.

Making a difference

We want to say a great big thank you and to celebrate the efforts of those that have gone above and beyond to help their communities during these very difficult times.

It might be a foodbank team, or businesses who are having a hard time but still doing great things. It could be an individual that has provided care, someone looking out for an elderly neighbour, or a member or team of our incredible emergency service workers.

But we need YOUR help –  we need you to tell us who you think should receive recognition for all they have done and why they should be crowned one of your local heroes.

Surprise, surprise

The crowned heroes will be rewarded with a super light-related surprise in the run up to Christmas, one that will Shine a Light on them.

Who can be a hero?

You can nominate an individual, local groups, organisations or businesses.

A panel of judges, which will include people from the local community, will then select three heroes from each community as the winning heroes.

The judges will consider things like how the nominee has helped and how this has contributed to their community during the pandemic, how it is they have gone above and beyond, and what difference their efforts have made and to who.
