|At Star Radio we know that there are people all over our area who go the extra mile to help others in our community. We also know that some are doing quite extraordinary things without even realising it! |
We think it's about time these people are recognised and thanked in public. With the support of our sponsors and community partners we will find these people and, at a Gala Awards Dinner, we’ll honour them for being Local Heroes at the heart of our community.
Star Radio's Local Heroes 2013 is sponsored by Derwentside Homes
