There are just two days left for you to place your vote as readers of the Luton News have their say in the People's Choice category of the Luton's Best Awards 2021.

The awards, in partnership with Love Luton, celebrate the achievements of truly remarkable individuals and organisations who make Luton a better place. COVID-19 has had an impact on everyone in some way, but since the start of the pandemic, the town has seen some of the most incredible acts of kindness and selflessness across Luton.

Earlier this month we revealed the shortlisted nominees in the various categories. For the People’s Choice award, you, the general public, get to vote for your winner from all the candidates.
