THE DEADLINE for nominations in the Community Award category in the Observer-supported Harry’z Young Starz Awards is on Friday (June 30).
So far two devoted youngsters have been handed the Selfless and the Young Carer Awards.
On each occasion Harry’s mum and founder of Help Harry Help Others, Georgie Moseley along with a member from sponsors Hogarths Hotel have surprised the winners when they least expected it.
The awards – for which nominations are now open – celebrate amazing and inspirational young people.
They were launched in 2014 by Georgie Moseley, proud mother of the inspirational Sheldon schoolboy Harry Moseley, who selflessly raised over £750,000 through his legendary bracelet campaign before passing away aged eleven.
However, they were put on ice for two years as Help Harry Help Others opened a Drop In Cancer Centre in 2015 and the charity renovated a patient’s house last year.
But now the awards are back and set to celebrate inspirational children – with the support of The Observer and the help of Hogarths Hotel in Dorridge.
Each month an award will be handed out for one of the eight categories.
The winners from each category will be invited to an Awards Ceremony at Hogarths Hotel and Restaurant in December where one lucky winner will receive the coveted Harry’z Young Star Award.
Nominees must be under the age of 18, be able to demonstrate how they have gone above and beyond and be available to attend an awards dinner in December.
Entries after the closing date for each category will not be considered.
This month is the turn of the Community Award.
This award is for an individual who has had a significant impact on their community.
The person may have volunteered their time to a local charity, or had a positive impact their local community.
The deadline is June 30 – any applications received after this date for the Community Award will not be considered.
If you know someone who fits this category, or any of the others, nominate them by emailing [email protected] or call 0121 783 5407 to request an application form.
