Sportsafe UK are pleased to support the Dream 100 and Town 102 Local Hero Awards 2016 as the sponsor of the Teacher of the Year Award.

The Local Hero Awards were introduced by the Anglian Radio Group in 2014 to recognise the unsung heroes in the Dream 100 and Town 102 broadcast areas (north Essex and south Suffolk) who contribute so much to our community in so many different ways.

Our category “Teacher of the Year” – recognises teachers who are bringing learning to life by engaging and inspiring all children and young people to fulfil their potential.

The listeners of Dream 100 and Town 102 will be asked to nominate their local heroes online and then the winner will be decided by panel made up of our sponsors and the radio station team.

The category winners will be presented with their awards at our star studded ceremonies and their stories broadcasted on-air!

There are lots of categories to choose from, which recognise individuals, groups and organisations who give so much to our lives including the Armed Forces Award, Best Neighbour, Carer of the Year, Child of Courage, Outstanding Bravery and Emergency Services Award.

So nominate your local hero now:
