Wasps, in association with Club Partner Hannafin Contractors – a leading civil engineering and groundworks company – are calling on fans to nominate a community hero so they can be recognised for their efforts.

The awards aim to recognise and reward people across the region that have made a significant difference in their local community. It could be a friend, family member, doctor, nurse, teacher, delivery driver, parent or child. To make a nomination, fans can let Wasps know what makes this person stand out as going the extra mile for their community.

Wasps and Hannafin – which has offices across the Midlands including at Middlemarch Business Park in Coventry – will select four winners over the coming weeks and share their stories on the Wasps website and social media channels. They will also receive, courtesy of Hannafin, hospitality, a signed shirt and a message from a Wasps player.

To enter, fans need to email info@wasps.co.uk with the nominee’s name and up to 100 words on what makes this person stand out as a Community Hero. Please ensure you include a contact telephone number.

Adam Benson, Chief Commercial Officer at Wasps, said: “We are delighted to partner with Hannafin on the company’s Community Hero Awards.

“While the past few months have been some of the most challenging any of us have ever witnessed, the emergence of incredible stories of communities coming together and supporting one another has been truly inspirational.”

Ciaran Considine, Head of Business Development at Hannafin Contractors, added: “Having Wasps support us with our Community Hero Awards really does help to amplify the message so that we can attract more nominees and give even greater profile to our very worthy eventual winners.”

Hannafin are also running the same project with Castleford Tigers Rugby League Club, based in the north of England, whom they also partner with.

To nominate a Community Hero, email info@wasps.co.uk. Four deserving winners will be selected by a Wasps ambassador and member of the Hannafin team. Entries close on 22nd June 2020 at 5pm.
