Tuesday 22 September, 2020

We are thrilled to announce the launch of the Annual Real Heroes Awards – nominations are now OPEN!

These Real Heroes Awards recognise and reward outstanding individuals across the organisation – both staff and the people we support.

There is more prize vouchers up for grabs too – £50 for individual winners and £100 for teams.

Please send all your nominations for the following categories to Sam Goodwin ( by the end of this month. Printed versions can also be posted for my attention to the Knottingley address (contact details are included on the bottom of the nomination form. Plus every person who submits a Real Hero nomination automatically gets entered into a prize draw for the chance to win a £10 Love2Shop voucher themselves.

As the UK’s leading multi-retailer gift voucher, these can be redeemed in over 20,000 stores, restaurants and attractions, with over 150 top brands.
