Shirley Ballas from Strictly Come Dancing is heavily involved with the awards.

She said: “In 2018 I was fortunate enough to visit a National Lottery funded project and see first hand where funding goes and how valuable it is to those in the community.

“The last 14 months have been extremely tough on us all.

“But as we hope for better days ahead, we are constantly astounded by the way people respond to adversity with heroic yet simple acts of love, kindness and selflessness that will be long remembered.

“I have been fortunate to witness how hard these local heroes work and how deserving they are of these awards and accolades.

“They should be celebrated and will only be celebrated if you put them forward - so please get nominating!”
