Heroes in the Community


Celebrating the Island’s Everyday Superstars

The Isle of Man is full of everyday heroes who do extraordinary things. They help support and encourage others and are the people that really make the Island a great place to live.

Every year, Dream Catcher gives you the opportunity to acknowledge your local hero at the Heroes in the Community Awards. It’s your chance to recognise those people across the Isle of Man who work for the good of others or who have show tremendous courage, and in turn help raise funds for our fantastic charity!

The 2015 ceremony had a black and gold Oscars theme with winners, their guests and members of the local business community treated to a glamorous evening fit for Hollywood.

The event raised a massive 30,000 for Dream Catcher so thanks to everyone who joined us on the red carpet and to all the sponsors and organisers.

Congratulations to the winners – you truly are all superstars!
