Baroness Doreen Lawrence said: "There are many women and young people who do great things in their local community and beyond.

"Last year’s event highlighted some of the phenomenal women in our community and this year we want to give a platform for many more to be recognised for the valuable work they do and achievements they have obtained."

The six categories to enter are entrepreneur, volunteer, outstanding individual, group/team acheivement, young acheiver and young volunteer.
