LOCAL and regional newspapers play a vital role in highlighting the stories of people who give up their time and energy to help make their communities better.

We want to hear more about these great people.

WRVS is putting together a comprehensive power list of ‘66 over 66’, highlighting the success of older people from all walks of life.

One of the categories on our power list will be local heroes from our local communities. We’re searching for men and women, they could be your friend, neighbour or a member of your family, local people over 66 who give up their time, who go the extra mile and who refuse to let their age slow them down.

We’d really like your readers to help us find these fantastic people who are making such a difference to the community.

Nominations can be made at www.goldagepensioners.com or by phoning 0845 600 9529.
