Nominate Your Covid Hero

Published September 08, 2021 4.33pm


Do you know a local hero who embodies the region's renowned goodwill?

Someone who has gone above and beyond to #BeatCovidNE by helping those around them? Perhaps it was dog walking or offering companionship and care. There are hundreds of small ways North Easterners have helped each other and this is your chance to say 'thank you'!

The Covid Acts of Kindness Community Award celebrates an outstanding individual in each of the seven North East local authorities. This is your opportunity to nominate someone - who can be of any age - you think is most deserving of recognition.

Nominations are open until midnight on Friday 1 October 2021 and 250 words is all it takes to shine a light on your local Covid hero.
