ASHBOURNE families are being invited to nominate an inspirational Family Hero for an award, with less than a month to go before nominations close.
The awards take place each year to celebrate unsung heroes who go above and beyond the call of duty to support children and families through tough times.
The competition is open to everyone, from people who work or volunteer to support families, to those who take self sacrifice and care for their own family to a whole new level.
Twelve regional finalists will be selected and the overall national winner will be rewarded with a cash prize of £5,000.
To nominate, download or fill out a nomination form online at www.4children. org.uk/familyheroes.
The deadline for entries is August 31, and the winner will be announced on November 6.
