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.
