Lord Lieutenant of Buckinghamshire, Sir Henry Aubrey-Fletcher said: “This is a fantastic opportunity to say thank you to the many individuals who have gone out of their way to help others during this difficult time.

“COVID-19 has impacted on each and every one of us in varying ways but many worthy men and women in Buckinghamshire have taken it upon themselves to proactively help others who have been more severely impacted.

“From setting up community support networks to donating their time and skills, these people have made a huge impact on their local communities. It is only right that they should be recognised for the work they have done. There are many unsung heroes out there so if you personally know someone who you think deserves to be put forward, think about nominating them."
