The 10th annual Kingdom FM Local Hero Awards, again co-sponsored by The Courier, have been launched in Kirkcaldy.
Nominations are now open for the contest which honours the inspirational work and contributions that unsung individuals, businesses, schools and voluntary organisations make to the Fife community, culminating in a glitzy dinner and ceremony at the end of August.
The full list of main sponsors are Paint Tec Accident Repair Centre, Gym Sixty-Four, Pentland Landrover Cupar, GIA Business Properties Ltd, Forth Ports, The Courier and Owen Buchanan Builders & Skips.
Over the last decade Kingdom FM’s independent judging panel has received 10s of thousands of nominations for groups and individuals in Fife who make a real difference in the community.
