Over the course of the pandemic many groups and individuals have gone above and beyond for their local community. Whilst the pandemic has been brutally hard for everyone it has also brought out the best in us and rekindled a community spirit which I think is so important.
I think it is important these community heroes are given the recognition they deserve. So I am running a Community Heroes Award for Edinburgh South which will draw attention to the many selfless acts by people all across the constituency.
Every person and organisation nominated will get a letter and a certificate and the winners will receive prizes.
If you know of any person or group or organisation who you think merits recognition please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and include the person/organisations name, contact details (if you have them), and outline the reasons why they deserve recognition.
