Warwick and Leamington MP to pay tribute to local heroes

HERO nominations are being called on for a new event held by Warwick and Leamington MP Matt Western.

The Labour MP will hold his first annual ‘MP Community Awards’ event to pay tribute to hardworking and often unsung local workers and volunteers.

He wants to give particular recognition to those who have been integral in the community’s fight against covid-19 – and those who have shown extraordinary generosity to help others.

The event – which will be named the ‘Warwick and Leamington MP Awards for Community Excellence’ – is set to take place on Thursday February 18, and there are several categories for nominations.

The public can vote for individuals, a business, community group or team (a hospital team or charity team) which have gone the extra mile in supporting and serving residents.

Mr Western said: “This has been, and remains, a hugely challenging time for the whole Warwick and Leamington community as well as the country.

“And now, as we hope to have seen the worst of the pandemic, it is only right to recognise those working people and local heroes upon whom our community relied to tackle the virus. Be it the nurses, doctors, care workers, volunteers, or inspiring residents who have led the fight against the pandemic.”
