HALTON residents are invited to nominate their unsung heroes for the UK’s largest diversity awards.

Entries open next month for the National Diversity Awards, a celebration of the outstanding achievements of positive role models and community organisations across the country.

Singing Sensation Misha B said: “The National Diversity Awards was one of the most inspirational award ceremonies I have been to.

‘It was a pleasure to perform for such a diverse audience, and witnessing the amazing journeys of all the award winners made me proud to support this worthwhile cause.

“It’s my honour to continue celebrating diversity in all its glory during 2014.”

Some of the nation’s most inspirational and selfless people gather annually to recognise the country’s rich tapestry of talent.

The prestigious black tie event showcases the extraordinary work of those who have demonstrated their devotion to enhancing equality, diversity and inclusion in today’s society.

There are several awards categories including positive role model, community organisation, entrepreneur of excellence, diverse company and lifetime achiever.

You can nominate a positive role model and community organisation under different strands including age, disability, gender, or race/faith/religion.

The awards ceremony will be held in London on September 26. Nominations open Monday, February 3.
