People are being encouraged to nominate #LivingLegends for a wall of honour to recognise those who go the extra mile to help others.
Photographs will be used as part of the Looking After Each Other campaign in a display in Old Market Square in the city centre over Christmas and New Year.
The campaign is being run by Nottingham City Council with Nottingham City NHS Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and Nottingham Community and Voluntary Service (NCVS).
To put someone forward for inclusion, people are asked to:
1. Get a photograph of the person they want to be on our #LivingLegends wall
2. Write a brief line about how this person is making a difference to others
3. Email the photo and words to LookingAfterEachOther@nottinghamcity.gov.uk
4. Please make sure you have the permission of the person you’re nominating
The closing date for nominations is Thursday 8 December.
Running throughout November and December, the Looking After Each Other campaign is encouraging people to do more to help others – especially those who are lonely, isolated or vulnerable – as well as celebrating those who already help to make a difference.
A menu of suggested ways to make a difference is available at the campaign website www.LookingAfterEachOther.co.uk.
Cllr Alex Norris, Portfolio Holder for Adults and Health at Nottingham City Council, said: “An important element of our campaign is to celebrate people who make a real difference to the lives of others in Nottingham. We want to shine a light on the people who go the extra mile – not just the big things like fostering, but also the everyday things that help others.
“If you know someone who deserves to have their moment in the spotlight, please tell and help us to do something special for them.”
