The deadline to nominate groups or individuals for a Pride in Medway award has been extended.
You now have until Friday, January 4 to nominate someone who deserves recognition for helping in the Towns.
One of the nominees this year is Elizabeth Shaw who founded One Big Family Helping the Homeless.
Homeless people in the Town's know they can have dinner and shelter for the night thanks to her.
Mrs Shaw, of Waghorn Street, Chatham, set up the charity four years ago.
The group runs a weekly soup kitchen under the big screen at Waterfront Bus Station in Chatham and a winter shelter in The Emmaus Church Centre, in Clover Street, Chatham.
One Big Family was the 2017 Pride in Medway overall winner but this year Mrs Shaw has been nominated as an individual by her husband Darren.
Mr Shaw said: "To my mind she's the only one who deserves it."
"She even quit her job as an assistant manager at one of the Dockside’s clothing stores, to focus on the charity.
"She drives people to appointments or takes them to Alcoholics Anonymous meetings.
"She has been known to sit down with homeless people on the street to see if they are okay, even if they just want a cigarette or a chat."
"She was born to do it.
Mrs Shaw will be invited to a certificate evening in February where all the Pride in Medway nominees will be awarded and the judges will short-list the finalists.
