Nominated by the public and our journalists, nominees will come from all walks of life, of all ages, and from all over Devon. Their achievements are awe-inspiring and a lesson to us all. They say they are ordinary people, but their acts are truly extraordinary. This event is honouring people who have gone above and beyond to do good for their community most of the time without any recognition or reward.
Devon has always produced a great many community-minded individuals and we’ve been proud to share their campaigning and fundraising success stories over the years but, these days, with more cuts to services, we rely on these generous volunteers even more.
We hope to be overwhelmed by a great number of entries across all categories so we can show these individuals and groups that we recognise their sacrifices and achievements and are overjoyed to have the chance to say thank you.
I do hope you will join us in what promises to be an incredibly rewarding, emotional and uplifting evening.
See you there.
