The BBC is running a London-wide Make a Difference Awards programme, which is very similar to Richmond Upon Thames' Community Heroes Awards and a chance to say a further 'thank you' and show recognition to people who go above and beyond to make others' lives better.
Our nomination period for this year's Community Heroes Awards ended on Wednesday 1 March, and we have received a fantastic collection of submissions recognising those who have tirelessly gone the extra mile to make our borough a better place to live and be.
We will be announcing our shortlisted nominees on Monday 3 April, and an awards event will be held on Tuesday 25 April 2023.
The BBC are offering a further opportunity to show appreciation for our borough's unsung heroes through their London-wide Make a Difference Awards, which has eight categories, many of which overlap with our categories for the Community Heroes Awards, including their Green Award, Together Award, Volunteer Award and Community Group Award.
Nominations for these awards close this Sunday 5 March at 11pm. You can read the award rules here. Winners will be selected by a panel of judges and awards will be given in each category.
If you submitted a Community Heroes Award nomination (or even if you didn't get the chance!) this is a great further opportunity to give our local heroes the recognition they deserve.
Find more details, information and clips from previous winners on the BBC website.
