A DUDLEY based insurance broker is inviting people to nominate unsung community heroes for an award and a chance to win £1,000 for their chosen charity.

Swinton Group is calling for nominations for its ‘Swinton Diamonds’ award which aims to recognise those in the area who dedicate their spare time to others – whether they foster children, run charity marathons or lead a local Brownies group. 

The programme is part of the UK’s largest high street insurance broker’s 60th anniversary celebrations.

Lynda Deeney, customer service manager at Swinton’s Dudley branch in the High Street, said: “Community spirit is incredibly important to us at Swinton, so this is our chance to give something back to those who go the extra mile for others here in Dudley.

“With this award we can celebrate the unsung heroes in our local area who give back to their local communities – and help more people in turn with the £1,000 donation to our winner’s charity of choice.”

To nominate someone for the ‘Swinton Diamonds’ award go to www.swinton.co.uk/swinton-diamonds.

Entry forms need to completed by Monday July 17.
