Last Chance To Nominate For Community Awards
If you want to nominate a charity, organisation or individual for a special award you have to do so by the end of today.
Entries for this year’s Community Awards close on Wednesday 13th September. The annual awards night is being held at the end of next month with winners in seven categories being named.
A number of charities and organisations have been praised for their hard work in recent years with the 2016 winners including the GSPCA, the Priaulx Premature Baby Foundation, PWC CI and Millie Bourgaize.
The Community Awards were created to complement the Foundation’s primary objective of ‘promoting effective philanthropy within the Bailiwick‘.
The organisers’ website says :
‘They are an excellent way of highlighting and applauding the many success stories of the voluntary sector. The awards are intentionally informal yet educational, interesting and illuminating and have proven to be a great inspiration to the many guests in the room’.
Paul Mundy, Managing Director of State Street Guernsey, which is the principle sponsor of the awards , said:
‘So often the endeavours of many and the energy it entails, go on beneath the radar and those involved are rarely recognised by the community at large for what they do and what they achieve. State Street is delighted to be working with the Guernsey Community Foundation to host the Community Awards which embraces the full breadth of charitable and philanthropic work in Guernsey. The people of Guernsey deserve to be thanked for the wonderful, selfless and tireless work that they do to benefit and improve the lives of others.’
