Who’s your Community hero?

Nominate a local community hero and they could win £100 

Community Heroes LogoRoaring Meg Retail and Leisure has joined forces with The Comet Community Awards to recognise local community heroes. Each month a new hero will be chosen and awarded with £100 cheque and entered into a grand final at the annual Comet Community Awards.

To nominate a community hero simply email and tell us in fewer than 200 words why your nominee deserves the title Community Hero.

A spokesperson for Roaring Meg said “We’re passionate about our community, and we’re keen to recognise the special people who make a difference to those around them”

“So often the people who devote much of their lives to helping others go without any recognition at all; it certainly isn’t their motivation. So we’d like readers of The Comet to help us find community heroes in Stevenage and the surrounding areas so we can reveal their inspirational stories and say a great big ‘thank you’.”

September’s Community Hero went to Kay Lowney, a dedicated charity worker who died from cancer in August. Click here to read more >
