Nominate Your Community Hero Today!
The Compass FM team have launched the St Hugh’s Compass FM Community Awards 2018 and would like to receive group and individual nominations ahead of the application deadline on Tuesday 31stJuly.
The community awards celebrate unsung heroes from the region who have achieved something exceptional, overcome challenges or shown extraordinary bravery in difficult circumstances.
The nomination process is a simple one-page online form, which the organisers hope will enable more people to make a nomination in one of eight categories this year.
Ashley Brown, Director at St Hugh’s, said: “The St Hugh’s Compass FM Awards are a great opportunity to celebrate all of the extraordinary work being done by individuals and groups in the region, often on a voluntary basis and with little or no support.
“As a not-for-profit organisation we’ve donated £1.1m to research and community projects focusing on dementia and promoting healthy lifestyles in Lincolnshire. We understand the importance of championing those who give their time to drive initiatives and support activities in their local neighbourhoods.
“We’re pleased to be returning as headline sponsors for the awards again this year and look forward to celebrating the amazing achievements of the local community.”
The 2018 award categories include Child of Courage; Business or Employer of the Year; Team or Charity of the Year; Volunteer of the Year; Sporting Achievement of the Year and Community Star of the Year.
There are also two special awards, the Mayor’s Award and the St Hugh’s Recognition Award, which will be presented by Ashley Brown.
Ashley concluded: “As one of the judges I’m looking forward to reading all of the nominations and hearing about more about the amazing people in our community.”
