Harrow’s Heroes 2023: Finalists Announced!

Harrow’s Heroes returns this month, celebrating outstanding individuals and teams who make Harrow a truly special place to live and work.

Each year, the awards ceremony shines a spotlight on the best of the borough, acknowledging the thousands of individuals who go above and beyond to support their neighbours and communities.

From the dedicated carers and food distributors to the valiant emergency services, dedicated teachers, compassionate volunteers, and hardworking street cleaners and transport drivers, Harrow’s Heroes strives to honour all those who play a role in making the borough a better place.

The awards, organised by Harrow Council, are open to everyone residing or working in Harrow or serving Harrow residents. This year, the response has been overwhelming, with over 100 nominations pouring in.

The finalists for this year’s awards, which are set to take place on September 13th, have been announced, and anticipation is building as the community as we get set to find out who has won each category.
