Do You Know a Special Youngster? Pride of Coventry and Warwickshire Community Awards


Byline: By SAMANTHA CLARKE samantha.clarke@mrn.co.uk

THE Evening Telegraph Pride of Coventry and Warwickshire Community Awards reward the people who work tirelessly to make a difference to the daily life of our city and county.

The awards are now in their fourth year and cover a variety of categories - looking for people who quite simply make life worth living for someone else.

In keeping with the spirit of these awards, the "heroes" receive cash for a charity of their choice and one overall winner is honoured by Coventry Cathedral, having his or her name inscribed on the millennium screen inside the cathedral.

The awards recognise people of all ages and in all areas of society, from teachers and nurses to members of the emergency services and those who do unstinting voluntary work. There are also awards for those who have shown individual courage and initiative to help others.

By April, our judges will have come up with a short list of five in each of the six categories and all 30 nominees and their partners will be invited to a lunch when the final winners, plus the one overall winner, will be announced.

Nomination forms are being printed in the Evening Telegraph every day and are also available on our website, www.iccoventry.co.uk

The winners will receive a cash prize, to donate to a charity of their choice, and the overall winner will have a lasting tribute on Coventry Cathedral's millennium screen.

The Coventry Building Society is sponsoring the young hero category, which aims to find a special youngster, aged under 18, who helps out in their local community for the benefit of other residents.

Mr Ritchley said: "We are delighted once again to be supporting the community awards and this is now the fourth year we have been involved with this worthwhile event.

"Coventry Building Society is committed to the communities it serves and sponsoring the young hero award gives us the opportunity to acknowledge and honour the work that young people have done to make the world they live in a better place. …
