The YorkMix Hero Awards Are Coming!
We’re getting ready to celebrate the achievements of York & North Yorkshire’s most inspirational people in our Hero Awards ceremony.
We know how difficult the last year has been and how many people have made real efforts to help others, now is the time to thank them.
Our winners will be announced on October 8th at Principal York, but before then we need your nominations for each of our award categories.
This Year’s Award Categories
The Best Boss Award
Is your boss a cut above the rest? Do they make coming to work the best part of your day? We’d love to find out more about what makes them so great.
Award sponsored by Minster Windows
Community Champion Award
Who stands up for where you live? Is there someone who makes it a better neighbourhood or who fights for local causes? Maybe there’s someone who organises every local or runs a community group that you benefit from, why not nominate that person for this award?
Award sponsored by King’s Fish and Chips
Who is your local environmental hero? Someone who has made a real effort to change our attitudes to the world we live in and how we look after it.
Award sponsored by D.B.D. Cleaning Ltd
Fundraiser of the Year
Do you know someone who goes out of their way to raise money for a charity or organisation that’s close to their heart? It’s not the amount raised that counts, it’s what they do, and what they give, to raise it.

The Incredible Child Award
Are you the parent, guardian or just have the honour of knowing a child who has done something incredible over the last year? If so, we’d love to hear about what makes them so special.
