Suffolk’s community heroes who have gone above and beyond to help others during the pandemic are being sought for a national competition.

Young adults across the county are in with a chance of winning up to £250 in Amazon vouchers for their role in helping others throughout the pandemic, as part of the competition organised by Urban Jungle.

Nominations could be for those who have been shopping for an old neighbour – or for frontline health care heroes – and the nominator could also win a £100 voucher.

Urban Jungle CEO Jimmy Williams said: “We think young adults have had to endure a lot in 2020 and want to do our bit to say ‘thank you’.

“Perhaps they went shopping for an ill neighbour, took up the slack at work when others couldn’t or have been on the front line. We want to hear your nomination.”

Nominations must be made before midnight Friday January 7, 2021.
