Coventry City of Culture Trust invites you to nominate #OurCovHeroes

As the response to #CoventryGlows was so inspiring, Coventry City of Culture Trust is now expanding the celebration of frontline staff, key workers and volunteers.

The Trust is calling on the people of Coventry to nominate their local heroes as part of the ongoing celebration of Year of the Nurse and Midwife. People can nominate their heroes by sharing a picture of them and the reason why they are a local hero. 21 Coventry heroes will then be selected to have a professional portrait taken by a photographer, which will feature in a presentation and special event later in the year.

The local heroes could be a police officer, retail worker, volunteer, neighbour, community leader, mental health worker, chef, faith leader, vet, bus or train driver, shop assistant, mechanic, gardener, carer, parcel delivery worker - anyone that has been providing a vital service or simply just doing their job, during the pandemic.

Like #CoventryGlows, this is an opportunity to share heart-warming and personal stories from the pandemic and celebrate those who have continued to work hard for their community and City.

Each week Coventry City of Culture Trust will share five top submissions on #5at5 across Twitter and Instagram.

To nominate your local hero send a picture of them and a maximum 200 word description (written or voice recording) of why they should be included to

Submissions will close 12th June.
