Time is running out to submit nominations for the very first Pride of the Isle awards.

And to encourage everyone to put a name forward before Christmas Day, nominations can now be made by text.

If you know someone who deserves an award for their special ways, then simply text your name, their name, and the reason you are nominating them, to 0740 7506774.

This new venture, to honour the Isle’s most inspirational people, is in memory of the late Alexander Strong of Epworth. And money raised from a presentation evening at Epworth Leisure Centre on January 25 will go to the Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice.

The presentation evening is on the first anniversary of Lexy’s death from cancer. The Torn will entertain, and a hot and cold buffet will be provided.

Men, women or children can be nominated for awards in different categories.

An eventual nine people will be celebrated, simply for being inspirational in some way to others.
