A new awards scheme has been launched highlighting the unsung heroes of communities across Stoke-on-Trent and North Staffordshire.
Your Heroes is sponsored by Stoke-on-Trent City Council and Staffordshire University and organised by Port Vale FC and the Port Vale Foundation Trust in partnership with numerous local organisations.
Our campaign will recognise Children of Courage, Future Stars, Charity Champions, Volunteers, Community Groups, NHS Heroes, Inspiration in Education, Carers, Uniformed Heroes and local Sporting Icons.
“Your Heroes is a natural extension of the community work that the club already does across North Staffordshire.
“There has never been a time when we’ve needed to celebrate local heroes more and I would urge people to nominate anyone or any group which they feel is worthy of consideration so that we can say thank you and champion them.”
“The University will also be involved in helping the winners on their journey by raising aspirations and upskilling or offering educational experience or training opportunities to those who have received recognition. We very much look forward to the campaign.”
“At the city council we believe our city is stronger together and we are committed to working with people to improve their lives and their neighbourhoods.
“I’m looking forward to hearing more about the unsung heroes across the city that will be rightly recognised through these worthwhile awards.”
