We all know someone like this...



I think all of us knows someone in our local community who is constantly there for others. Someone who gives up their time to help others. Someone who wants to make a difference but doesn’t want to be known, thanked or acknowledged for their wonderful and selfless contributions that they make.

And even though they may not want to be acknowledged for their work, they deserve to be. This is why Apia and Starts at 60 are working together to thank the people in our community who truly make a difference with the Apia Local Champion Award.

You can nominate someone in your community for the October award by filling out the form below. This is your chance to recognise the people you know who make a difference so go ahead and nominate someone now.
