Do you know an unsung hero, dedicated carer or someone who goes that extra mile to lend a helping hand? Then we want to hear from you!

We need YOU to nominate deserving locals who we can honour with a Chad Pride Award.

The awards, which are once again being kindly backed by our associate sponsor Specsavers, will celebrate the unsung heroes who do so much across the area.

There are 13 award categories in total, plus an overall winner and you can find full details by visiting our the Pride Awards website page CLICK HERE TO GO TO PRIDE AWARDS PAGE

To nominate someone by phone, call Haroldine Lockwood on 01623 450221

The Specsavers store, on Westgate, has been at the heart of Mansfield for more than 21 years and has once again signed up to be associate sponsor of the awards scheme, which it has done for the last six years running.

Imogen Hoyle, store director at Specsavers in Mansfield, comments: ‘We’re really excited to announce that we’ll be the associate sponsor of this year’s Chad Pride Awards. We’ve sponsored the awards for the last six years and feel passionate about rewarding worthy members of our local community that go that extra mile.

“It’s always very humbling to hear the stories of the winners at the awards and we’re really looking forward to learning more about the nominees at this years’ ceremony.”

But in order to honour the community’s unsung heroes, we need your help.

Perhaps you know a child or adult who has displayed remarkable courage, a gutsy neighbour who has improved your area, a tireless charity fund-raiser or campaigner, a dedicated careworker, or member of the emergency services or armed forces who have gone beyond the call of duty to help others?

Whoever it is, let us know via www.chad.co.uk/prideawards or by calling 01623 450221
