Unsung Heroes Awards

The Unsung Heroes Awards 2021

Ordinary people doing extraordinary things

Thank you to everyone who has taken the time to nominate their Unsung Hero.  Nominations are now closed but we are delighted to announce that we had more entries than ever before. We are now in the process of choosing the 10 winners which will be announced late summer, in time to ask the public to vote for their overall winner.

This will be the fifth year we are celebrating the outstanding contributions made by volunteers from across the Wakefield District. They represent a hidden army that, put simply, changes people’s lives on a daily basis within their local communities. These are the people who go that extra mile by running/organising activities or supporting older people and families to make their lives that bit better.

The main People’s Choice winner will be chosen by Wakefield Express readers. Each award is a celebration and acknowledges the contribution of those who are rarely, if ever, in the limelight; people who give their time freely.

All of the winning nominees are invited to the 2021 Unsung Heroes Awards, at Cedar Court Hotel, Friday 1st October. The event, which is hosted by TV personality Harry Gration, celebrates the individual achievements of the nominees through a series of short films.

If you would like to attend this wonderful evening of celebration, please book your tickets here. Thank you for supporting your local community.
