West Leeds Dispatch would like to celebrate and shine a light on our local heroes – and that’s why we’re renewing our appeal for readers to nominate their ‘Community Champions‘.
Do you know someone that goes that extra mile to help their community? Someone that goes out of their way to help others that doesn’t get the recognition they deserve?
This could be a friend, neighbour or someone you have seen on social media, anyone who you think deserves a massive thank you for their hard work.
It could be someone like Bramley’s Joanne Brophy, who has helped countless others through her group Hookers and Clickers (do it for Charity), which is based in Kirkstall. Or Bramley Baths’ green-fingered community gardener Alison Brewster, or Jackie Scargill, who runs a West Leeds reading group.
Get in touch and let us know. Why do you think they deserve some appreciation?
Anyone will be considered who makes our amazing community a better place.
You can nominate an individual or group. Nominees can be someone that gives food to those in need, litter picks, volunteers their time to make a difference without asking for anything in return or helps out in a community centre or local church. Really, anything that shows kindness and genorosity.
Your community champion does not have to have changed the world or saved a life – they just need to be making a difference in West Leeds.
We’ll highlight their work both on our website and next month’s print edition.
