We are celebrating the eleventh year of the Evening Times Glasgow Community Champion Awards and the search has started for the heroes of 2018.
We have already rewarded more than 400 community champions from across the city and now we want to hear more about the people who make our city great.
So whether you or someone you know has made a difference by caring for others, campaigning for better services, or in general creating a positive environment, we want you to tell us about it.
We are also delighted to once again be working in partnership with Glasgow City Council, Glasgow Community Planning Partnership, Scottish Fire and Rescue, Glasgow Fort, City Building and Police Scotland, who will each assist in our search for this year’s champions.
The finalists will be chosen at three events which will take place across the city in the North East, South and North West of Glasgow.
The winners from each local event will automatically be selected as finalists for a prestigious awards ceremony to be held in the City Chambers in November 2018.
The awards are FREE to enter.
We wish you the best of luck and look forward to meeting you at the events in the coming months.
For information on the 2018 awards please contact Hannah Docherty on 0141 302 6037.
