HOPE not hate is launching a competition to find the champions of our communities – the unsung heroes who bring communities together and make life better for ordinary people.
These might be people who through their work – like a youth worker, teacher or doctor – help to break down barriers between communities. It might be people who give up their spare time through voluntary and community work to contribute to making their communities a better place. It might be someone who uses their position in a place of worship to reach out to people of other faiths and of none. It might be someone working with refugees or a teacher who helps children from different cultures to get along together; or it could be a parent who gives up their spare time to help young people from different backgrounds to play sport.
Every community has them and, now, HOPE not hate would like to acknowledge them too.
HOPE not hate is asking supporters to nominate the people in their community who they believe warrant the term of “community champion”.
The most inspiring will be invited to a HOPE not hate award night at a top London restaurant in early autumn.
Let’s say thank you to those who make life better for those around us. Nominate your Community Champion.
