Have you ever looked at someone who volunteers in your community and said “That person deserves a medal”? Do you consistently see people in your town or village giving their time to the sick, elderly or less fortunate? Are you one of them? If so, why not tune into our webchat and find out how you can get them and yourself recognised as Community Champion or Heritage Hero?

The Nationwide Community and Heritage Awards 2008, which seek to recognise those who volunteer and give their time in the community, is welcoming entries and nominations from today until the 28th of April. Although national fame and glory are undoubtedly a major draw, there’s actually a whole lot more on offer. In stage one alone 216 regional winners will each receive an attractive plaque, along with £50 dining out vouchers for individuals or £100 for groups. 72 winners will be recognised in a similar fashion in stage two and by stage three winners will be acknowledged with gifts to the value of £500, together with a £2,500 donation to the charity or cause of their choice and a trophy. There will be three overall winners from both the Community Champions and Heritage Heroes categories.

As you can see there are lots of awards up for grabs giving people from your region a really good chance of getting recognised for the work they do. To give you some more information and to offer you some top tips on filling in your application we’ve got Stephen Boyce, The Heritage Lottery Fund’s (HLF’s) deputy director of operations and Michelle Leighton, Community & Environmental Affairs Manager at Nationwide Building Society coming into the studio. You’ll be able to ask any questions you have about the scheme and hear about the benefits previous winners have enjoyed after being recognized in this way.

Stephen Boyce, HLF’s deputy director of operations and Michelle Leighton, Community & Environmental Affairs Manager joins us live online on Monday 25th February at 6pm to discuss The Nationwide Community and Heritage Awards 2008
