Plunkett’s popular Community Contribution Award, kindly sponsored by Thakeham, returns for another year as we once again seek to find an outstanding individual who has gone above and beyond for the community business over the recent months. The Award is looking for people who have gone the extra mile, perhaps they’ve:
- been integral to ensuring those most in need within the community have been looked after during this difficult time
- maybe they’ve lead the community business on food parcels or arranging social activities,
- or maybe they’ve been at the helm of coordinating volunteers for the community business,
- or they’ve simply been working tirelessly to ensure the community business has the funds it needs to see them through.
Following the nomination round, we received many wonderful entries telling us about people from all over the UK who have shown outstanding commitment and kindness to their communities. Those nominations were carefully considered by a panel of judges made up of representatives from Award sponsors and we are delighted to now be sharing with you, the three finalists of the Community Contribution Award as Karen Loftus, Simon Atkin and Vera Wright.
To help us find our overall winner, we’re asking you to vote for who you’d like to win. Voting will open on Monday 1st November and will close at 4pm on Monday 8th November.
