This is a fantastic opportunity to honour those locals who work selflessly in the Albert-Eden community by shining a spotlight on them.

Nominations to the Albert-Eden Local Board Heroes Award 2021 are now open. Click here to nominate. 

The judges will be looking for amazing people in the Albert-Eden Local Board area who have delivered exceptional service for the community which benefits the people, communities or the environment in Albert-Eden. 

“We know there are people in our community who work tirelessly for the welfare of others or the environmental space. As a board, we want to thank them and acknowledge the invaluable contribution they make to our local area,” says Albert-Eden Local Board Chair Margi Watson.

Previously, people working in a wide range of sectors from environmental conservation to the arts and in various capacities have been honoured for their contribution.

Susan Li Kwan, the Chairperson of the Epsom Chinese Association was acknowledged for the group’s work in the community at the previous Awards.

The Epsom Chinese Association aims to integrate Chinese and NZ culture by holding activities and classes to teach members NZ culture and promote traditional Chinese culture.

“This is a wonderful way to acknowledge individuals and organisations for what they do in the community. It’s simple, people just have to nominate volunteers,” Kwan says.

“It is rewarding for volunteers to know that their hard work is recognised. This encourages them to keep on working for the community,” Kwan says

Who is eligible?

The emphasis is on voluntary contributions, but Albert-Eden Local Board also acknowledges that there are many people who go above and beyond their paid positions in their work for the community.

The local board wants to recognise often unnoticed efforts made by individuals, groups or organisations which benefit the communities within the Albert-Eden Local Board area.

It’s important to note that those acknowledged previously in 2019 are not eligible for this years’ Awards.
