This exciting community event celebrates the achievements of individuals in Ely and surrounding villages who make special and inspiring contributions to assist others. Nominations are sought over 10 different categories; more details and a nomination form can be found on the website www.elyheroawards.org.uk
The event has grown year on year and the 2019 season is all set to be even more exciting – we are absolutely delighted to announce an official Media Partnership with BBC Radio Cambridgeshire! Each year heart-warming stories of unsung heroes are received through the process, this partnership will allow stories to be shared through the various radio shows, in particular “Mann in the Morning” hosted by Chris Mann. Chris personally hosted the glitzy Award Ceremony in 2018 and we are delighted that he will be hosting again this year.
Chris says “Hosting last year’s awards evening was an absolute honour and I am delighted to once again be involved in this wonderful event which, in a few short years has become such a vital celebration of local life. It’s impossible not to be moved by the extraordinary stories of those being honoured, by the tales of their endeavour and achievement, often against the odds. Once again, we will be supporting the event and broadcasting those stories on the Mann in The Morning show on BBC Radio Cambridgeshire from 9-12 weekdays”
The launch of Ely Hero Awards 2019 begins on Monday 4th March and over the following 8 weeks everyone is encouraged to nominate a local hero, the deadline for submitting an entry will be Monday 29th April.
Keep up to date with what is happening during the process on Chris’s show “Mann in the Morning” Chris is on air every week day 9am until 12pm. Check www.facebook.com/elyheroes and www.twitter.com/elyheroes for more news.
The hero awards are given at the discretion of the judging panel, so every single nomination stands a chance of winning on its own merits. 3 finalists are chosen from each category to attend the award ceremony in July with the winners being announced on the evening.
