The Community Foundation Tyne & Wear and Northumberland is calling for people to nominate their unsung heroes in the community, who donate their money and time to worthwhile causes, but rarely have their generosity recognised publicly.
The Unsung GeNErosity Hero competition is part of the Community Foundation and Newcastle University’s GeNErosity Festival, which is sponsored by Muckle LLP. It is a series of 50 events, taking place across the North East between Wednesday 7 November and Tuesday 27 November, celebrating the history and role of philanthropy and giving across the region, which has helped to shape the North East today.
Nominations for Unsung GeNErosity Heroes can be made across five categories via the GeNErosity Festival website until 19 October. Members of the public will then vote online for their winners during the course of the Festival, with the winners being announced during the closing event of the Festival on Tuesday 27 November.
