Every day across Lambeth, people who care about their local community make a positive contribution to the lives of others and now Lambeth Council would like to thank these people and recognise their contribution to the borough.

The closing date for nominations is Monday 17 August at 9am. The awards ceremony will take place this September in the Southbank Centre’s Royal Festival Hall.
