A new care home in Thame is asking the community to nominate local heroes to win a cash prize.

Care UK’s Cuttlebrook Hall in Stock Road is searching for people or organisations who go above and beyond for their community, friends or family.

The home is also looking for those who are deemed have a positive impact on the local area.

The winner of the competition will receive £300 and will be presented with the funds at the care home during its grand launch event in December.

Those interested in nominating an individual or organisation they think fits the bill are encouraged to nominate them on the Care UK website before 11.59pm on Friday, November 10.

Submissions should start by explaining in 100 to 400 words why their nomination deserves to be rewarded.
