Every nominee, shortlisted candidate and winner of the upcoming Moray & Banffshire Heroes is a hero in their own right.
But from the winners on the awards night on Thursday, May 14, the ultimate recognition will be paid with the presentation of the hero of heroes award. In this special category, the award will be presented to one of the 12 winners recognised at the awards ceremony, and the judges have to decide who is most deserving of the title.
Returning to sponsor the award in 2020 is Springfield Properties.
Springfield managing director (north), Dave Main, said: “We’re really pleased to support once again the Moray & Banffshire hero of heroes award. These awards celebrate the people who shape and make our community. At Springfield, applauding our staff is a large part of our ethos and it’s important we recognise those who make a positive difference to the wider community too. We want to celebrate these people and give them the appreciation they deserve.”
At the inaugural Moray & Banffshire Heroes last year, Buckie RNLI won the emergency services award and at the end of the night were declared the first ever winners of the hero of heroes title. Joe Herd and Dave Grant collected the trophy at the red carpet ceremony in Elgin last year.
