Make A Difference award nominations OPEN!
BBC Radio Sussex and BBC Radio Surrey have been celebrating the people who make where we live a better place for twelve years and would do it again!
Community heroes who make a difference where they live will be recognised in a new award scheme being run by every local BBC radio station in England. But they need your help to identify people who should be honoured.
If you’d like to say thank you to someone making a difference to your life, someone else’s or improving where you live, please do recommend them for a Make A Difference Award. The deadline is in a few weeks. All finalists will be invited to a lovely celebration in September.
You can nominate someone you know at bbc.co.uk/makeadifference, where you can also see full Terms and our Privacy Notice. Nominations are now open and will close on the Sunday 5 March 2023 at 11:00pm. The winners will be announced at our Make a Difference awards ceremony in September.
