As part of their 20th anniversary celebrations the Fermanagh Trust, in partnership with the Impartial Reporter, plans to celebrate and acknowledge 20 inspirational community heroes whose kindness, ingenuity and voluntary input have made Fermanagh a better place to live.
This is a great way to honour those individuals who give rather than take, go the extra mile to help those around them doing the very best work which goes largely unnoticed and unrewarded. A chance to sing the praises of the otherwise unsung.
The 20 community heroes will be an unranked celebration of good deeds, large and small. All to be equally applauded for their extraordinary efforts that make for a better County Fermanagh. It is open to individuals who through their voluntary input have enabled change to take place and striven to improve community life.
What better way for the Fermanagh Trust to celebrate their 20 years of work supporting community and voluntary endeavour than by paying tribute to those stars who do so much within Fermanagh. They could be charity fundraisers, campaigners, volunteers or simply those who have done such extraordinary things to help others that their story must be told. In particular, to celebrate all aspects of the Fermanagh Trust’s work, nominations are sought from those involved in a range of areas including community relations, voluntary work, enterprise, music, drama, sport and community development.
What makes it so special is that these 20 community heroes will be nominated by members of the public. Awards will be presented during the Fermanagh Trust’s 20th Anniversary celebration event on 13th October at the Ardhowen Theatre.
Closing date for nominations - Friday 4th September 5pm
