Denton MP to recognise local heroes

Denton MP Andrew Gwynne is looking for local heroes who have gone above and beyond for people in their communities - both before and during the coronavirus pandemic.

Nominations are open for his 'Citizen's Awards' which will recognise the efforts of those who have gone to extraordinary lengths to help others, particularly during the current crisis. 

In Denton and the surrounding areas, there have been many heart-warming stories of constituents lending a hand (from a safe distance, of course) to those in need.

The Labour MP's constituents are being encouraged to nominate people in their local community who they believe have gone above and beyond to support those in need - both before and during the coronavirus pandemic.

Nominations will be assessed by a judging panel, with winners to be announced on a monthly basis.

Mr Gwynne commented: "I am delighted to open nominations for the Denton & Reddish Citizen’s Award to recognise the efforts of our local heroes. 

"I have been overwhelmed with stories about the amazing, supportive work of so many in Denton and Reddish during the Coronavirus pandemic.

"Regardless of whether the work of your local hero is Coronavirus related or not, I would encourage you to nominate them for a Denton & Reddish Citizen’s Award, so that their efforts can be recognised and we can all express our thanks."
