Churchill Retirement Living searches for a Hero

Retirement housebuilder, Churchill Retirement Living is calling on people to nominate their local hero for a prestigious award at their annual Churchill Awards.

The Churchill Awards celebrate the outstanding achievements of those aged over 65 in society and the special Local Hero Award recognises a member of the British public who has made a particular contribution to their local community.

The winner of the Local Hero Award will be invited to an exclusive ceremony in London to collect their award alongside celebrity award winners as well as judges, who this year include Dame Esther Rantzen and former England manager Lawrie McMenemy.

Spencer McCarthy, Chairman and Group Managing Director for Churchill Retirement Living, comments: “The Churchill Awards recognise everything the over 65s contribute to our society. This group of people play a significant part in our local communities and the Local Hero Award is about recognising the difference they make.

“Last year, due to the incredible entries, there were three winners of the award, Lyn Williams, Keith Pellett, and Raymond Brown for their charity and community work and we hope to find similarly wonderful people this year.

“This year’s awards look set to be bigger and better than ever, and we look forward receiving many nominations for the particularly special Local Hero category.”

Churchill Retirement Living has teamed up with Wave 105 to judge this year’s Local Hero Award nominations. A team from Churchill Retirement Living will create a shortlist, which will be put to the public before a winner is announced at the award ceremony in February 2016.
