Charity search for community heart heroes

A national charity is on the hunt for local heroes.

The British Heart Foundation (BHF) is launching their Heart Hero Awards 2018 and asking for people to nominate their heart hero. The awards, which are now in their fourth year, recognise the different ways people fight heart disease.

This year there are three categories: Healthcare Hero, Young Heart Hero and the Inspiration Award.

The Healthcare Hero award will recognise a doctor, nurse, or person working in a healthcare setting who has made a special effort to make a difference to the life of a heart patient or their family.

The Young Heart Hero award will go to an exceptional person under the age of 18 years who has done something amazing for the BHF and is a source of inspiration to others.

The Inspiration award will recognise a person who inspires others through their determination and dedication. Whether that is through their fundraising efforts, taking part in a physical challenge, organising an event, or volunteering activities.

Nominations are open until the 11th May at 4pm. The winners will be announced at a gala awards dinner that will take place in London on 5th October.
