The Good Neighbour award is up for grabs in this year’s NottinghamshireLive Heroes 2020 awards.
The Service has sponsored this years virtual awards and want you to tell Nottinghamshire Live all about the special people who live on your street.
The Good Neighbour Award celebrates those unsung heroes who have put themselves out to improve the lives of those around them. If you know someone who helps their neighbours by running errands, or someone who keeps an eye on people living alone or has helped out in a crisis why not nominate them!
Chief Fire Officer John Buckley sees brilliant neighbours helping one another every day.
John said: “We are extremely proud to be sponsoring the Good Neighbour category for this year’s Heroes Awards. It means a lot to me, and to us as a Fire and Rescue Service, to be able to recognise the compassion, commitment and practical support offered by local people to help those living nearby.
“As a service, we work hard to support all members of our communities and ensure they are as safe as possible from fire and other incidents, by visiting people at home, supporting local businesses, visiting schools and colleges and working with our partners to safeguard vulnerable people.
“The strong sense of community spirit that we see almost on a daily basis plays a huge part in creating safer, happier and more integrated neighbourhoods. Whether it’s a smile and a wave in the street, a friendly face or listening ear, or more practical help with things like shopping and DIY, good neighbours make great communities.
“It therefore gives me great pleasure for Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service to be a part of the Heroes Awards process, and to help highlight the selflessness and dedication of our truly inspirational neighbours.”
The closing date for nominations is the 7 October 2020 and a virtual ceremony will be hosted by Nottinghamshire Live on 10 November.
