It is clear that there are many people around the country whose quality of life is dependent on the generosity of un-rewarded carers

The launch of a national campaign to find a local hero to be named “Most Deserving” and receive the gift of £10,000 towards a car, plus a donation of £2,500 donation to the charity of their choice has highlighted the vital role unpaid carers across the country play.

Leading used cars website launched the competition to champion local heroes in January and has been over-whelmed by the response. Nominees include several high profile charity campaigners, including a Paralympic athlete, but many private carers with spouses and other family members who are depend on them have also been singled out for praise.

Phil Jones, commercial director at calls for family and friends to get behind their nominees and nominate individuals who they believe are special: “We’re hearing some life-affirming stories about people who do great work without reward. It is clear that there are many people around the country whose quality of life is dependent on the generosity of un-rewarded carers.”
