Every community has them but they are often the unsung heroes who generously give up their free time to help make their neighbourhoods better places to live.

Highland Heroes recognises these real-life superheroes with the community champion of the year category.

The award for community champion of the year will be presented to an individual who has made a significant contribution to their community.

NOMINATE at www.hnmedia.co.uk/highlandheroes/ in any of the categories by December 17.

The community champion of the year is sponsored once again by Springfield.

Springfield managing director (north), Dave Main, said: “At Springfield, we understand the importance and value of a community. We know it takes more than houses to create a home. It takes people, places for children to play and local amenities nearby ‒ it takes a community. “From pre-planning stages, during construction and once our homes are occupied, we work hard to engage and support our neighbours and those living in our homes.

“That’s why we are, once again, proud to support the community champion category of the Highland Heroes Awards. We want to hear about those people who are doing fantastic work to help shape and make communities across the Highlands. These awards are an excellent way to celebrate these people and give them the recognition they deserve.”

Each week, your favourite Highland News & Media (HNM) websites and newspapers will feature each category.
