One lucky winner will be invited on stage to speak to the event hosts, in front of a huge home crowd, before joining the famous faces to light up their city.

We are looking for nominations for local citizens who have done some amazing things during 2021, someone who’s a great community champion, and flies the flag for Preston. Do you know someone?
