WIRRAL Council is calling on residents to nominate their local heroes to receive a Wirral Award. The annual awards, presented by the Mayor in a ceremony at Wallasey Town Hall, confer civic recognition for either an outstanding achievement from the last 12 months or distinguished service over a period of 20 years or more. Past winners include:- dedicated community volunteers, hardworking fundraisers, social workers, sportsmen and women, educators and community leaders.  Mayor of Wirral, Councillor Pat Hackett, said:- "Having seen the good work done by many different groups throughout my year as Deputy, and the first few months as Mayor, my appreciation has grown. The Wirral Awards are one of the highlights of my civic year. The annual ceremony is the Mayor's chance to express, on behalf of the people of Wirral, how grateful we all are for the dedication of selfless individuals. Now it is up to the people of Wirral to highlight those who need recognition. I look forward to seeing the nominations and to the day of the awards."

Antony Jones Looks for Christmas Helpers

COMMUNITY Fundraiser for Marie Curie Antony Jones, launched a plea to the people of Southport to help raise hundreds of pounds this November and December. The charity needs more volunteers to help collect at supermarkets throughout the area, to make sure every hour of every collection is covered.  Marie Curie organise supermarket collections around the festive season, raising funds to provide 1 to 1 nursing care for terminally ill people in their own home.

Antony, Community Fundraiser said:- "We have amazing volunteers in Southport, who give their time to collect each year, but we always need more volunteers to make sure we don't miss out on valuable collecting time and therefore valuable donations from festive shoppers. We're really lucky in that the local supermarkets and shopping centres have been so generous in offering us dates to collect; we just want to make sure we make the most of this opportunity to raise much needed funds for end of life care.  By giving us just 2 hours of your time this Christmas to help collect in a supermarket, you'll be helping us raise much needed funds. Christmas is a time for families and our nurses will again be working over the festive period to provide vital care and treatment to people with cancer and other terminal illnesses, enabling them to be at home, surrounded by their families and the things they hold most dear."

Please get in touch if you would like to give up a few hours to help fund local cancer care. For further information about the collections, please call the Fundraising Office on:- 0151 801 1412 or send them an email or please go to our website to find your local collections and sign up online.
