THE search continues for the unsung heroes and heroines of our community.
Trinity Mirror Cheshire – publisher of the Pioneer – has once again joined forces with ScottishPower to host Your Champions 2008, an exciting venture which lets us pay tribute to those who make a difference in our area.
Your Champions has been highlighting the good work of individuals and groups since 1988 and we want you to tell us who should get the red-carpet treatment this year.
Our heroes and heroines will be honoured at a glittering presentation ceremony at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Chester on Friday, November 14.
There are many people whose voluntary work goes unreported. So many who quietly go about their work, but make a real difference to their locality.
We want you to nominate them and bring their good deeds to the attention of a wider audience.
All you have to do is complete our form and send it to our office. Or log on to our website at www.iccheshireonline. co.uk/yourchampions or send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
