We are asking you to nominate the real heroes of Mansfield and Ashfield as we gear up to launch our sixth annual Pride Awards.

The awards will recognise the selfless and tireless work of so many caring individuals and organisations within our community.

Your Chad will be inviting you to nominate someone you know who you think is so inspiring they deserve to be recognised with a Pride Award?

Specsavers, on Westgate, is continuing with its support as the event’s associate sponsor for this year’s awards.

The Specsavers store has been at the heart of Mansfield for more than 22 years with its growing team of staff always on hand to provide professional advice across the sight and hearing services.

Imogen Hoyle, store director, said: ‘We’re delighted to be the associate sponsor of the Chad’s Pride Awards.

“We fully support the local businesses and the town’s entrepreneurs, it’s this strong business acumen that our thriving community is built upon.”

Perhaps you know someone who deserves our Emergency Services award – with the search under way for inspiring stories about men, women or children who have saved the life of another in remarkable or difficult circumstances.

We are seeking individuals who embody the spirit of all those unsung heroes, open to all individuals of any age or ability.

Or our outstanding achievement award for a person aged under 18, who has achieved something outstanding, excelled in something they did not think they could, or who has just done something unexpected?
