UK Community Day – 23rd March – Your chance to nominate some of Wigan Borough’s wonderful volunteers


The first UKCommunity Day is fast approaching, and on the 23 March, we will be celebrating our local heroes, people who have gone above and beyond to support their communities and whose amazing work we are highlighting.

Charities, community groups and a number of councils and councillors across the country have been putting forward their most outstanding volunteer, a local hero to represent their local area. We also had cross-party support for this initiative with MPs and even some Ministers tweeting favourably about this initiative.We hope you can put forward your local hero, someone who really made a difference and could be an inspiration for others.  Please submit your nomination before the deadline on the 17th March.However, we encourage people not to wait till the deadline and to send us the nomination as soon as possible. 

Go to: and scroll down the page, where you would need to fill in the nomination form.

It costs nothing to take part. Moreover, we have a series of lovely prizes lined up that they might be able to win. Join us in celebrating our amazing Community Heroes, give your local hero a chance to win something special and let them inspire others to do something for their own local area

It would be great if our local charities and community groups would nominate some of our fantastic volunteers in Wigan Borough by 17th March 2021.
