There is a new Moray & Banffshire Heroes award for 2024!
We want you to tell us all about the amazing charitable organisations in your community and nominate them for a Heroes award.
The charitable organisation of the year will be a charity, social enterprise or not-for-profit organisation which delivers outstanding service to support the needs of its users and/or the community.
NOMINATE in any of the categories at https://www.hnmedia.co.uk/morayheroes/ by February 4, 2024.
William R Mair, Dignity Funerals UK, is sponsoring the charitable organisation award.
Funeral director, Caroline Duguid, said: "We're delighted to give our support to Moray & Banffshire Heroes once again, and for the new award that recognises and celebrates charitable organisations. As a local funeral director, we are very close to our community and we understand how important it is that when people need support they can get it.
"More and more communities today depend on the work and support of local charities, and the people that run them, raise funds and organise events and activities for those who need it the most ‒ often behind the scenes ‒ really deserve to be recognised."
"This is our way of saying thank you to them all. We'd encourage everybody to get behind the campaign and nominate the heroes in their community."
