Power FM's Local Legend

The Hunter community is full of dedicated volunteers, kind neighbours, passionate community workers, selfless carers and normal people who have gone and beyond to help out someone in need.

These are our local legends, the unsung heroes of our community.

We want to reward one of these unsung heroes as our 2019 Local Legend.

Nominate the local legend in your life, it might be a friend, neighbour, colleague or family member who always goes above and beyond to serve others and the local community.

To celebrate the generosity of PowerFM’s 2019 Local Legend, they will receive as an acknowledgement of their hard work a relaxing trip away to the beautiful NSW South Coast.

They will receive seven nights accommodation in a two-bedroom Bay View apartment including a continental breakfast served on the pool deck at Corrigans Cove, near Bateman’s Bay.
