Applicants can choose from five different categories; health and wellbeing, education, community support, charitable cause and youth.

Ian added: “Nominations can be anything from helping a Scouts group to go on a trip, to redecorating a community space or even donating books to a school.

“We’re looking forward top receiving all of the entries- I’m sure there are going to be lots of worthy winner, so it’ll be a difficult final decision!"
