Award to find unsung heroes

Residents in Filey and Hunmanby are being urged to come forward to nominate hard-working volunteers in their community for a top award.

The Carousel Brewers Fayre in Falconer Road, Scarborough, has announced a bursary scheme to support the unsung heroes of our community, following the success of similar campaigns in 2009 and 2010.

The 2012 Local Heroes initiative aims to recognise those who give their time to improve the lives of their fellow local residents.

Those nominated will be in with a chance to be awarded a share of a £10,000 pot that can be invested towards continuing their community projects within the area.

To nominate someone for this year’s awards all you need to do is visit the Brewers Fayre website and fill in the online entry form. Alternatively, complete an application form at your local Brewers Fayre restaurant describing why you believe your nominee deserves to be honoured for their work and the amount that could really make a difference.

Emma Price, spokesperson for Brewers Fayre commented; “Previous awards allowed us to support some very worthy winners and we can’t wait to do the same again this year.

“It’s so important to recognise those people around the UK who devote their own time to helping good causes.

“The Brewers Fayre Local Heroes bursary is intended to ensure that the fantastic work they are doing can continue.”
