The 2011 Doncaster Pride awards: Help us to salute our community champions

Make your nominations now

THE Free Press and Doncaster Council are launching their 2nd annual Pride in Doncaster Awards 2011 to recognise those special people in our communities who give something back or have achieved something great.

Peter Davies, Mayor of Doncaster, said: “I really enjoyed last year’s awards ceremony; it was a great way to acknowledge and say thank you to the special people that live in our town.

“I’m really looking forward to hearing the stories of more outstanding people this year and encourage everyone to vote for someone special – they deserve to be recognised.”

Readers have been telling us for some time now how proud they are of Doncaster and we have been recognising this with our ‘Free Press Pride’ campaign which we launched into an awards last year. After the success we are delighted to be able to celebrate this now annual event and we look forward to seeing the entries flooding in again.

To enter a person or a group that has achieved something outstanding for themselves, another person or their community, complete an entry form and tell us why you think they deserve a Pride in Doncaster Award.

The closing date for entries is 16th September 2011 and winners will be able to attend an awards event at the Keepmoat stadium on Thursday 27th October.
