Andrew Gwynne, MP for Denton and Reddish, has opened nominations for Citizen’s Awards to recognise the efforts of local heroes who have gone above and beyond for the people in their communities.
Coronavirus has brought with it unprecedented anguish. People from across the country have found themselves in dire situations unimaginable just a few, short months ago. In Denton and Reddish, there have been many heart-warming stories of constituents lending a hand (from a safe distance, of course) to those in need.
There have always been local heroes in Denton and Reddish, working quietly and often unnoticed on behalf of others. Coronavirus has simply raised the profile of their amazing work, the demand for which is higher than ever before.
Gwynne would like to recognise local heroes with a Denton & Reddish Citizen’s Award. Constituents are being encouraged to nominate people in their local community who they believe have gone above and beyond to support those in need, both before and during the Coronavirus pandemic.
Nominations will be assessed by a judging panel, with winners announced on a monthly basis.
Andrew Gwynne MP said:
“I am delighted to open nominations for the Denton & Reddish Citizen’s Award to recognise the efforts of our local heroes.
“I have been overwhelmed with stories about the amazing, supportive work of so many in Denton and Reddish during the Coronavirus pandemic.
“Regardless of whether the work of your local hero is Coronavirus related or not, I would encourage you to nominate them for a Denton & Reddish Citizen’s Award, so that their efforts can be recognised and we can all express our thanks.”
All nominees need to either live or have carried out commendable work in the Denton and Reddish parliamentary constituency. If you are unsure, you can enter postcodes here to find out if they are within constituency boundaries.
