Helping to make a difference

Waiting for Video...

This week (May 12-18) is Local Newspaper Week, which celebrates the achievements of those who make a difference in our local communities.

Be it by The Advertiser, local groups or individuals, this is the time to recognise people’s contribution.

As part of Local Newspaper Week, The Advertiser has met up with the Volunteer Centre Midlothian, which has been promoting its Beadazzling - Get Ready for Retail Project.

We also want to celebrate others in our community who are also working hard to make a difference.

And that’s where you come in – we’re looking for suggestions of individuals or groups who do just that.

It could be someone at your school, workplace, neighbourhood or a community group that offers that extra special something.

We’re particularly keen to see videos of your nominations in action, they don’t need to be more than around 30 seconds - so send footage, here.

Even if you don’t have video to send, we’d still love to hear about people who are making a difference to you - let us know here

We’ll publish the best ones - and we’ve teamed up with Frankie & Benny’s to offer a £50 vip voucher for the best one. Deadline for entries is May 18, 2014.
