The hunt is on to find the Cheshire Woman of the Year 2016.

Do you know an amazing woman in Cheshire? Perhaps your mother, daughter or sister fits the bill? Or maybe someone you work inspires others and deserves recognition?

Now is your chance to nominate an exceptional woman for this prestigious award which gives recognition to women from all walks of life who have shown personal courage, achieved outstanding professional success, or given services to their local community.

The Cheshire Woman of the Year Award is in its 31st year and has raised more than £275,000 to help children across Cheshire and Wirral.

Chair of the Cheshire Woman Award Society committee Sylvia Cheater said: “The Cheshire Woman of the Year celebration is a way of paying tribute to all the women across the region who have made a real difference to their communities – many are unsung heroines.

“We are looking for a wide range of nominations and now is your chance to recognise a special woman in your community.”

Thanks to the generosity of sponsors this event raises much needed funds for the NSPCC. In the current economic climate the need is even greater.

All the money raised is used to help children and families in Cheshire and Wirral – including support for ChildLine.

A nominated woman should live, work or have been born in Cheshire – including Wirral. She can be nominated for contributing to her community, personal courage or outstanding professional achievement.

If you would like to nominate someone for Cheshire Woman of the Year 2016 or for more information visit or contact the NSPCC fundraising team on 0161 3934474 or, email

Nominations must be received by Monday, January 18.
