YO1 Radio's Nightshift

Midnight - 6:00am




YO1 Radio has teamed up with York Electric from First Bus to give you the chance to celebrate your community or sustainability hero with a prize that, genuinely, money can’t buy!

We’re going to NAME A BUS from the shiny new state-of-the-art York Electric fleet – and we need YOUR help to choose those worthy of having their name on display across the city in recognition of their contribution to society.

We want you to tell us about that person from your local community who really deserves this unique honour.

We’re looking for ordinary people who go the extra mile. Maybe they are a key player in your local community, helping to organise events and activities bringing the community together? Maybe they’ve helped raise valuable funds or given hours of their time to a local charity? Maybe they selflessly look after a vulnerable person or make a difference to a community group? Maybe they are a sustainability hero, creating a greener future for York?

We know there are dozens of people out there who just get on with it and make that difference quietly, day in, day out. Now is your chance to show them – and the whole city – that what they do is really valued.

Make your nominations now, using the form below. But keep it to yourself!

When we’ve chosen our two winners, the team at First Bus will design and produce the graphics on the bus – we’ll then surprise the lucky winners by turning up at their place of work or home. We can’t wait to see their faces!

Nominations are open until 12pm Monday 8th July.

Please complete the following form and hit the SUBMIT button. We will be in contact with you if we need any more information from you.
