Each year, Local Hero highlights the incredible ideas and feats of local charity fundraisers. Local Hero 2018 will run between 1st and 30th of April.
Now is the time to turn those budding athletes, artists or acrobats into fundraisers for your cause!
All participating fundraisers will be ranked on the Local Hero leaderboard according to the number of unique online donors who sponsor their page.
At the end of the campaign £5,000 in prizes will be distributed among the causes supported by the top 20 fundraisers with £1,000 awarded to the winner’s group.
