Do you know any charities, businesses or individuals who deserve greater recognition for what they do? The Guernsey Community Foundation’s annual Community Awards are returning to St James in November and are the best opportunity to celebrate all those who work tirelessly to raise money and embark on community projects for the benefit of others here in the Vale, across the Bailiwick and further afield.
The event is hosted by the Guernsey Community Foundation, with the support of a range of sponsors. Awards are presented across seven categories:
Charity of the Year
Fundraising Team of the Year
Outstanding Individual Achievement
Organising Committee of the Year
Jim Roberts, the Chief Executive of the Community Foundation, said: “We are very proud of the Community Awards, which highlight the amazing voluntary work that goes on in our community. Work is already underway to make this year’s awards the best so far.”
Nominations for the 2018 Awards will open in August. In the meantime, Islanders and Vale parishioners are encouraged to start thinking about which outstanding charities, businesses and individuals they think are worthy of wider recognition.
For further information about the process or the Community Awards in general, please contact William Carter on 748056 or at [email protected]
