EastEnders Star Jacqueline Jossa is looking for a King's Lynn local hero
EastEnders star Jaqueline Jossa is looking for a West Norfolk local hero for this year’s National Lottery fund project.
Miss Jossa said: “I really hope lots of people nominate a local hero because these people deserve to be celebrated, especially during these challenging times when many need the support more than ever.
“So much National Lottery funding goes to great causes and allows these local heroes to continue their inspirational work within our communities and its thanks to National Lottery players that this can continue.”
The National Lottery Awards are the annual search for the UK’s favourite National Lottery funded people and projects and they celebrate the inspirational individuals and groups who do extraordinary things in their community especially during these challenging times.
Winners in each category will receive a £3,000 cash prize for their organisation and a coveted National Lottery Awards trophy.
National Lottery funding of more than £1m has been given to good causes in the borough of West Norfolk in 2019 and 2020 according to new figures released yesterday to mark the launch of the National Lottery Awards.
Encompassing all aspects of the good causes funding, the 2021 National Lottery Awards are seeking to recognise outstanding individuals in the following sectors:
Culture, Arts & Film
There will be a special Young Hero Award for someone under the age of 18 who has gone that extra mile in their organisation. All nominees must work or act for a National Lottery funded organisation or have received National Lottery funding.
Winners of these categories will be chosen by a judging panel made up of members of the National Lottery family and partners.
To make your nomination for this year’s National Lottery Awards, tweet @LottoGoodCauses with your suggestions or complete an entry form through its website www.lotterygoodcauses/awards.
Entries must be received by midnight on June 7.
