Do you know someone who goes the extra mile for you or someone in your community?

We want to recognise those special people who give up their time to come to the aid of their neighbours and help make their lives better. There may be families who need a little extra help, vulnerable, disabled or older people, someone who is new to the area, a person whose first language is not English or someone who has been recently bereaved. These people in our communities appreciate the thoughtfulness, support and caring nature of a neighbour who goes out of their way to lend a helping hand.

It may be the little things you appreciate – maybe they help you get to the shops, provide free childcare, collect repeat prescriptions for you, help you look after your garden or have come to your aid in an hour of need. Or maybe they simply pop in for a cup of tea and a chat when you are feeling down.

This is your chance to say "thank you" to that person.
