THE successful Evening Times campaign to highlight the unsung heroes in Glasgow is now approaching its fifth year.
Entrants don’t require to have piloted a flaming Lancaster, or rescued a cat from a tree, just simply made a difference to their community.
The aim is to praise the unsung heroes who have contributed to their community either through their work or by volunteering.
There are eight award categories:
COMMUNITY CHAMPION INDIVIDUAL AWARD People who give up free time to make a contribution to other people’s lives or to a community.

YOUNG COMMUNITY CHAMPION AWARD This will be presented to an individual or group of young people, under the age of 17, who have made a difference to their community.
