Today we launch the Doncaster Pride Awards to honour those exceptional people in the town that go over and above to give something back to their community.
The awards are run in partnership with Doncaster Council and aim to recognise people from all walks of life, young and old for a range of different contributions.
The nominations will be deliberated over by a panel of judges and winners will be honoured at a glittering awards ceremony at Doncaster Racecourse on Thursday October 23.
Mayor of Doncaster, Ros Jones, said: “The Pride awards are a fantastic opportunity to congratulate all of these community heroes for everything they do in Doncaster. We can be extremely proud to have such people in our Borough, and I am glad that we have the chance to celebrate and thank them with these awards.”
South Yorkshire Newspaper’s group editor Chris Burton said: “Readers tell us on a regular basis how proud they are of Doncaster and how individuals in the town have made a real difference so we are delighted to be able to celebrate this and give these people a well deserved pat on the back.
“We are looking forward to seeing the entries flooding in.”
