Vogue model to make guest appearance at MP's award ceremony recognising local heroes

VOGUE model Edie Campbell will make a guest appearance at an awards ceremony recognising local heroes.

Residents can livestream MP Matt Western’s Community Awards event from 7.45pm tomorrow (Thursday).

It pays tribute to hardworking and often unsung workers, community groups, businesses, and volunteers in the MP’s Warwick and Leamington constituency.

The event will be hosted by local radio presenter Phil Upton and model Edie Campbell who grew up near the constituency will speak during the ceremony. She has appeared twice on the cover of British Vogue magazine.

Other notable community and business figures are expected to attend.

A panel of judges has been assembled to choose from nearly 100 nominations.

Mr Western says the event aims to give special recognition to those who have been integral in the community’s fight against coronavirus – and those who have shown generosity to help others over the last year.

The Labour MP said: “I am thrilled to have received so many interesting nominations from the community including, among others, carers, teachers, NHS workers and postmen.

“We have confirmed all our guests and judges while everyone who has been nominated will be recognised in some way for their contribution to Warwick and Leamington in the last year.

“There has never been a more important time to pay tribute to those who have served our community during arguably the greatest public health crisis the nation has ever seen.

“I want this to be an event the nominees will never forget. A hopeful light amid the darkness.”
