We are proud to announce the launch of the very first Local Business Charity Awards in Cumbria.
The awards were founded in Gloucestershire in 2014 and now have a presence in Gloucestershire, Oxfordshire, North Yorkshire and now Cumbria. We hope to have an awards in every county across the UK in time, if you would like us to run an awards in your area, please contact us.
Our sponsors for the Cumbrian awards are Jelf, who have been our loyal supporters since our launch in 2014.

'Support A Local Charity' in Cumbria launched!
In 2018 we launched a campaign called 'Support A Local Charity', asking local businesses to choose and support a local charity this year. It has become apparent to us that smaller charities, although desperately needing funds and support, often do not have the time, administration staff or experience to seek out corporate sponsors or enter awards. 'Support A Local Charity' aims to introduce Cumbrian businesses to Cumbrian charities who may be able to work together, offering not necessarily financial support but also skills share and mentoring.
Examples of how to 'Support A Local Charity' in Cumbria For instance:
Supporting a charity does not have to be about climbing mountains and raising money, it can also be about providing more practical support.
We will share details of the charities and firms we've put together and who knows, one day they could be featuring in our awards!
