Charity heroes in Norfolk could be in line to win £30,000 for their organisation.

In a bid to celebrate the achievement of charity volunteers, the Beacon Fellowship Charitable Trust is hunting for someone to win the title of Charity Champion of East Anglia.

The trust encourages people to give time, money or skills to charitable causes.

Now it is urging people in Norfolk to nominate individuals who are real charitable superstars.

The awards, which have been described by Prime Minister Gordon Brown as “the Nobel Prize of the charity world,” recognise extraordinary achievements in the world of charity.

With awards in seven categories and an additional overall prize, the winners will be invited to attend a gala event in London where they will receive the recognition they deserve for their good work.

A spokesman for the charity said: “Last year we received countless stories of extraordinary individuals throughout the East Anglia who have worked to make a difference both locally and on a global scale.

“We hope that, once again, this year's nominations will highlight the work of many more unnamed heroes who have given so much in the name of charity.”

Nominations close on April 16, and the forms can be found on the trust's website at
