We launch hunt for Crawley Community Champions
Do you know a community champion that deserves a great big thank-you?
This week the News is launching our Crawley Community Champions competition in tandem with Crawley Police and ASDA.
We want you, the reader, to nominate individuals or small groups who have gone the extra yard to be good neighbours and citizens.
We want to reward those whose acts of kindness make life more pleasant for everyone else in the town.
Maybe you know someone who works hard to keep their street clean and beautiful, a committed but unknown community group, a kind soul who helps an elderly neighbour with the shopping, or someone who works their socks off for Neighbourhood Watch.
Their regular good deed could be anything at all – so long as it helps others.
We want to find the unsung community heroes who have not previously featured in our paper. Once we have received a range of nominations, Sgt Darren Taylor of Crawley Police and the News team will pick the most impressive six as finalists.
The winner will then be voted by the public on our website www.thisiscrawley.co.uk.
Those who come first, second and third will win gift cards that can be spent in ASDA’s store on Pegler Way on goodies for the upcoming festive season.
Both the nominator and the Crawley Champion they are nominating must live or work in Crawley.
Please email editor Crawley news with –
1) Your name, street and contact number.
2) Your Crawley Community Champion’s name, street and contact number.
3) Why you are nominating this person.
Please leave ‘Crawley Community Champions’ in the subject line.
