West Midlands PPC urges Silhillians to nominate their unsung hero

Solihull Editorial 2nd Apr, 2023   0

THE West Midlands Police and Crime Commissioner has begun his search for the region’s unsung heroes.

Simon Foster is asking residents to nominate people in the community that should be recognised for volunteering, acts of bravery, campaigning, and dedication to their neighbourhood.

The Outstanding Citizen Awards are held yearly and are designed to recognise the uncelebrated achievements of people in the West Midlands.

They are designed to encourage good citizenship and to make the region a better and safer place to live and work.

The deadlines for nominations is May 1 and the awards event will take place on June 10.

There are four awards categories up for grabs this year: Outstanding Citizen, Outstanding Young Citizen (under 18s), Outstanding Community Project and Outstanding Young Community Project (under 18s).

PCC Simon Foster said: “It’s so important that here in the West Midlands we recognise people who go above and beyond for the benefit of our people and communities

“These people don’t do what they do for personal gain or promotion, but because they want to help and support others.

“If you know someone who has done something outstanding to help their neighbours or community, then please visit my website, fill out the form and let’s celebrate it.”

The awards are now in their 11th year.
