Plunkett is delighted to be launching a new award in this years Rural Community Business Awards campaign.
The Young Person Award, kindly sponsored by Abri Housing, is an opportunity to celebrate the often un-sung heroes of community businesses – the younger generation. Over the last year, we’ve heard many stories of young people who have been integral in their community’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic and so what better way to give recognition and thanks to this inspiring group of people, then through our Awards campaign.
We received many wonderful nominations telling us about young 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 Young Person Award as Georgia Ball, Katherine Geikie-Cobb and Toby Carlton.
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.
