REWARD YOUR HEROES; Nominees Invited for a Pat on Back Pride of Coventry & Warwickshire COMMUNITY AWARS


Byline: By Emma Stone

THE search is on for the unsung heroes of Coventry and Warwickshire in the Coventry Telegraph Pride of Coventry and Warwickshire Community Awards - and they are again being backed by companies and organisations across the region.

The awards ceremony is being held on October 12 at Stoneleigh Park.

This year there are seven categories and you can enter via the nomination form on this page; pick up a form at the Telegraph offices or any branch of the Coventry Building Society; or log on to our website www.iccoventry.co.uk and enter by e-mail.

The overall winner will again have their name inscribed on Coventry Cathedral's Millennium Screen.

Here's why our sponsors are backing the awards:

AXA is sponsoring the Caring Hero category in this year's awards, alongside Massey Ferguson.

The award is open to both young and adult carers, as well as health or welfare workers who carry on offering support after their shift is over.

Joanne Lawson, of Axa, said: "So many people do wonderful, selfless work, day in, day out. Axa are proud to be involved with this award, which allows us to recognise outstanding individuals and the sacrifices they make in order to make a difference to someone else's life."

Paul Lay, public relations and communications manager for Massey Ferguson, said: "We are delighted to support these awards that highlight the real strengths of the local community.

"It is a particular honour to continue to sponsor the Caring Hero category which clearly demonstrates the incredible selfless dedication and commitment of those nominated."

THE University of Warwick is again teaming up with Jaguar to sponsor the Local Hero Category.

The award is aimed at those people who volunteer their own time to keep the community alive, whether it be through Neighbourhood Watch or caring for other residents.

University community relations manager Trevor Seeley said: "There were a number of strong entries for the award last year, and we were very pleased to help showcase the selfless work undertaken by local heroes.

"We are delighted to give our support again this year, and look forward to hearing some more wonderful stories about what people are doing for their communities."

Les Ratcliffe, of Jaguar, said: "Jaguar is again pleased to be supporting the local community and recognising members of the community for their achievements."

A PROJECT that has benefited the community will be the recipient of the Community Project of the Year award, sponsored jointly by PSA Peugeot Citroen and the Heart of England Community Foundation.

Speaking on behalf of both companies, Heart of England Community Foundation director Kate Mulkern said: "We are incredibly proud to be sponsors of the Community Project of the Year. All across Coventry and Warwickshire there are hundreds of fantastic projects, involving thousands of volunteers, making the region greener, smarter and fairer.

"Grassroots action really does change communities for the better." SOMEONE who has encouraged others to "go green" will be the winner of the Environmental Hero accolade, sponsored by Arena Shopping Park and the Benfield Group.

Centre manager Merrick Clarke said: "Arena Shopping Park is delighted to be associated with the Pride of Coventry Environmental Hero award.

"By building community awareness of recycling and environmental issues, we can focus on making life better for Coventry and its people"."

Clive Benfield, of the Benfield Group, said: "We were one of the first home builders in Coventry to adopt National Homes Energy Ratings back in the 1980s for our new homes at Westwood Heath. Since then, there has been a much greater awareness of the need for sustainability and care for the environment.

"K.B.Benfield Group are pleased to be supporting this important addition to the Telegraph awards and hope that it will not only give recognition to an environmental hero, but will encourage others to follow his or her lead. …
