From Stockport Council:
Stockport’s extraordinary people are to be recognised in the borough’s popular citizen awards.
The 6th annual Proud of Stockport awards will see individuals, groups or teams that go out of their way to make the borough a better place, recognised at a ceremony at Stockport Town Hall.
The Council, its partners, and award sponsors are asking people for their suggestions as to who should be honoured with a Proud of Stockport award.
Do you know someone who helps to make Stockport special? Is there an individual, a group, a volunteer, or perhaps a local personality, or someone else who deserves recognition for good and community spirit?
The list of award categories are:
- Ambassador for Stockport – Rewarding someone who has helped put Stockport on the map.
- Our Place - Rewarding the people who make their street, area, village or district centre a better place to live.
- Champion for Young People - Rewarding a person or group of people who influence children’s day to day lives in a positive way.
- Community Champion – Rewarding a person who goes out of their way to help their local community. It could be for organising a big community clean-up or helping others in their local area.
- Community-spirited Organisation – Rewarding a local organisation that puts a lot back into the community, be it through fundraising, caring services or staff initiatives.
- Sports Personality – Rewarding those involved in sport in Stockport.
- Volunteering Champion – Rewarding individuals or groups of people who make a real difference to Stockport, such as resident associations and community groups.
- Young Citizen of the Year – Rewarding young people aged 18 and under who help their community in lots of different ways.
