The Warwick and Leamington MP says the event aims to pay tribute to hardworking and often unsung workers, community groups, businesses, and volunteers.

Mr Western has received the support of model Edie Campbell who grew up near the constituency – and who has appeared twice on the cover of British Vogue magazine.

Ms Campbell will be speaking at the event which is set to be hosted by BBC Coventry and Warwickshire’s Phil Upton.

Other notable community and business figures are expected to attend.

Mr Western says the event aims to give special recognition to those who have been integral in the community’s fight against COVID-19 – and those who have shown extraordinary generosity to help others over the last year.

Mr Western says: “I am thrilled to have received so many interesting nominations from the community including, among others, carers, teachers, NHS workers and postmen.

“We have confirmed all our guests and judges while everyone who has been nominated will be recognised in some way for their contribution to Warwick and Leamington in the last year.

“There has never been a more important time to pay tribute to those who have served our community during arguably the greatest public health crisis the nation has ever seen.

“I want this to be an event the nominees will never forget. A hopeful light amid the darkness.”

The event will be held online and is being organised and developed by local web designers and production company Noisegate Media.
