The No2H8 Crime Awards have become the annual event to celebrate all that is good in our country and to ensure that decency, respect and tolerance for others are at the heart of our communities. The third No2H8 Crime Awards will take place on Thursday 13th September honouring those who stand against hatred, prejudice and intolerance. Nominations opened in July 2018 and close on the 10th August 2018. Anyone can nominate someone who has challenged hatred throughout the country, and made a positive impact in their community and stood up to prejudice and intolerance.
Previous winners of the No2H8 Crime Awards include medical specialist Dr Nasser Kurdy who was stabbed in the neck outside of the Altrincham mosque in September 2017 and helped those injured in the Manchester Arena bomb.
Other winners include Jack Stanley who was awarded the Young Upstander Award. Jack, 13, was featured on the national documentary ‘Educating Manchester’, where Jack comforted and made friends with Syrian refugee Rani Assad who was bullied at school. His actions led to the national hashtag #BeMoreLikeJack trending on Twitter.
