The Breeze Local Heroes

The Breeze Local Heroes with CCP recognises inspirational and influential people in Cheltenham and Gloucester. We want to celebrate the local people who make Cheltenham and Gloucester great and we need your help!

CCP exists to improve the lives of children, young people, families and vulnerable adults with multiple and complex needs.

Their mission is to:

  • Promote and support healthy living
  • Help maintain a safe and stable home environment
  • Encourage and support learning and achievement
  • Promote respect and positive social behaviour
  • Encourage personal economic sustainability
  • Provide both crisis and preventative services

The votes have been added up, and the winners have been announced, find out below the winner of each category of the Local Heroes Awards and read their story as to why they've been recognised as a Local Hero.

This year's prestigious awards will be held at Manor By The Lake in Cheltenham on the 12th April. This fantastic Victorian Manor, the former residence of Sir George Dowty, combines classic elegance, beautiful gardens and modern comforts with exquisite food from award-winning chefs. We are really excited to be hosting our Local Heroes Award Ceremony at this leading Gloucestershire venue.
