‘Firstly we would like to recognise the nominees who did not make it into the finals today. To even be nominated as a company who has done an outstanding job supporting a local charity, is something they should be extraordinarily proud of. As judges we had a tough job whittling down the nominees to these few finalists and to whom we offer our warmest congratulations. We are now very much looking forward to meeting them at the finals and to revealing the names of the eventual winners. Good luck to you all.’
The finals will be held on Thursday 5 July 2018 at The Hill End Centre, Eynsham. The event will be catered for by Oxfordshire charity Trax. The team will be producing food under the theme of ‘The Best of Oxfordshire’, using only locally-grown and produced foods and drinks, to reflect the very best of flavours in the county.
Although nominations for the awards are now closed, charities and businesses may continue to list themselves on the free ‘Support A Local Charity’ page, which aims to match up businesses and charities in a skills and need swap. https://www.localbusinesscharityawards.co.uk/support-a-local-charity-oxfordshire.html
