Do you know a Hambleton Hero

Launch of Hambleton Heroes

Hambleton District Council (HDC) is today launching the ‘Hambleton Heroes’ scheme, aimed at recognising those who’ve gone above and beyond during 2020.

Over the last few months there have been many acts of kindness, generosity and examples of communities pulling together and the ‘Hambleton Heroes’ scheme seeks to give people the opportunity to say thank you to a Hambleton Hero who has supported them.

HDC wants to acknowledge the selfless acts and relentless efforts that have made a real difference to residents from across the district when they’ve needed it most and celebrate the innovative ways people have overcome challenges in their community. 

Leader of HDC, Councillor Mark Robson said “There have been so many good examples of kindness, community spirit and selflessness, particularly since the start of the COVID-19 crisis in March 2020, and we wanted to give people the opportunity to put someone whose made a real difference in their lives forward to be recognised.

“Over the last few months, the need for the community to pull together and support each other has never been more important, and we see this initiative as the perfect way to celebrate the huge amount of fantastic community work that’s been carried out. I’m looking forward to hearing about individuals or group efforts that have made a real difference to our residents, who knows we could even discover our own Sir Tom!’.”
