STRIVING for equality is something to celebrate and the Diamond Jubilee Equality and Diversity Awards will see individuals being celebrated in style.

The Milton Keynes Equality Council is keen to recognise people who have gone the extra mile to fight against discrimination and inequality.

Navrita Atwal is chief executive of the Milton Keynes Equality Council and organiser of the Awards.

She said: “We want to give recognition to those who have embraced the equality agenda and made a noticeable difference.”

The star nominees include Lynda and Andy Gilbert.

They are nominated in the charity sector for the One World Club – after working to stage a hugely popular multicultural show over a number of years.

Tamara Smith and her partner Jo Green are two ladies who are very passionate about equality and have been nominated for their MK Pride event, which embraced LGBTQ individuals and encouraged wider education and awareness.

Mrs Atwal added: “I am calling for organisations in the public, statutory and private sectors to nominate.

“I am also calling for employers to sponsor the Diamond Jubilee Equality Awards – this is a once in a lifetime opportunity.”

> Submissions must be received by the MK Equality Council by November 16.
