Banbury Town Council is aiming to find a Champion of Champions to help give the Christmas lights switch-on a heart-warming glow.
Councillors have launched the hunt for a very special person – one who has devoted their life to helping others or achieved triumph against adversity.
“It could also be someone who has shown extreme bravery, as a civilian or in the armed forces,” said switch-on committee chairman Cllr Tina Wren.
The person chosen will be invited to a VIP reception at the town hall and will join this year’s chosen celebrity on stage to switch on the town’s illuminations.
“We think it would be wonderful to honour a Banbury person who leads, or has led, a special life,” said Mrs Wren.
“We know there are people who give or have given their lives to helping others or someone who has overcome adversity, shown great bravery, been a dedicated fundraiser or has a recognised war record.”
The person can be any age and nominations of up to 300 words should be sent to email@example.com.
The closing date is November 8. Candidates should be happy in the limelight!
