The search is on for an unsung hero in east Hull whose good deeds can be recognised this Christmas by the charity, EMS Yorkshire.
The Christmas Spirit Award has been devised by EMS, which has just marked its first anniversary operating neighbourhood management services in the Southcoates East area of Hull. The idea is being backed by Gateway – Hull City Council’s neighbourhood regeneration programme, Probe (Hull) Ltd and the Co-operative store on Preston Road.
EMS Neighbourhood Manager Andy Rees explains: “We want to champion someone who does great work in the community for a club or group, or helps someone less fortunate. We know there are lots of selfless people who give up their time. We’re launching the search now so we can give the winner a great start to their Christmas and say a festive thank-you to them.”
Nominations can be made straight away and will be promoted heavily during the forthcoming Local Food Week, organised by Probe’s Big Lottery Fund-backed Food 360 Project at the Freedom Centre, Preston Road from Monday 29th November. Contact Andy Rees on 01482 709810, email firstname.lastname@example.org or write to Andy Rees, EMS Yorkshire, Unit E, Preston Road Village Centre, Hull HU9 3QB, by December 17th, 2010, giving reasons why your nominee should be considered.
