Local Hero Awards

The Your Harrogate Local Hero Awards are back for 2024 - and nominations are now open!

The Local Hero Awards shine a light on the selfless, dedicated and inspirational people living and working in the Harrogate district.

Set to be held for a third year, the ceremony will be a glamorous event at Rudding Park Hotel on Friday 28th October 2024.

It’s all thanks to headline sponsors O’Connor Chiropractic and Vida Healthcare.

Your Harrogate Content Director and Presenter Nick Hancock said:

“We are delighted to bring back these very special awards. 

“There are some amazing people living and working in the Harrogate district and the Local Hero awards celebrates and thanks those superstars! 

“Last year we had a record number of nominations from all over Harrogate, Ripon and Knaresborough, so of course this year we’d like to beat that. 

“I’d like to especially thank all our sponsors, these awards would not be possible without their support. 

“The whole event is free for our finalists… there are no paywalls here!”

Do you know someone that needs recognition? Someone who gives their time to others, works tirelessly, has achieved something huge or is an unsung hero?
