Time to celebrate Waitakere’s unsung heroes

It’s time to recognise those people and organisations that keep our community ticking by nominating them for the 2010 Waitakere City Community Board Unsung Hero Awards.

Now in their third year, the awards are a chance for local people to celebrate and honour individuals or small groups that have done something worthwhile in their community.

“This is a great way for us to recognise the amazing people in our community that generously volunteer their time for the benefit of others,” says selection committee chair and Henderson Community Board member Shirley Savage.

“It’s our chance to say ‘thank you’ for the many incredible things they do which often go unrecognised.”

Nominees must be truly ‘unsung’ and not have received recognition in the past and cannot be part of a formally organised club or society.

Tell us in 250 words all about the person you are nominating, what they do, how long they’ve served the community and the impact their efforts have on the community.

There will be five winners in each of the four wards, Henderson, Massey, New Lynn and Waitakere. There will also be three citywide awards given to people whose work has benefited the whole Waitakere region.

Nominations open 11 April and close on 11 May 2010.

Send your nominations to:

Waitakere City Council
‘Unsung Hero’ Community Board Awards
Private Bag 93 109, Henderson
Waitakere 0661
