Suffolk’s seven MPs have launched the Suffolk Heroes awards to celebrate those who have gone the extra mile to help others throughout the pandemic.
Suffolk residents are asked to email their MP with a nomination of an individual they feel deserves to be recognised for their efforts. It may be they were a volunteer helping deliver supplies to those shielding, supporting the vaccine rollout or phoning those who may be alone whilst isolating. Equally the individual may have been a key worker on the frontline, either in the NHS, in our supermarkets, pharmacies or many of our other vital industries.
Therese said: "I’m really proud of how every single one of our communities have come together during coronavirus - with help and support available via local groups in every corner of our county. This has only been possible by the huge amount of volunteers who put themselves forward. That's why my fellow MPs and I want to recognise Suffolk's heroes. So, if you know of someone that has gone to extraordinary efforts over the last 15-months please nominate them."
Nominations can be made by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Winners will be announced on Suffolk Day, the 21st June.
