Hello! We're back!
Hi everyone, we're back for the sixth year with the Local Business Charity Awards (Gloucestershire). We've grown so much over the last few years but we will never forget where and when it all began, right here in Gloucestershire. Thank you for all your support over the years; you've helped us grow and for that we are truly grateful.
Our sponsors Jelf & Ageas
We are super grateful to our loyal sponsors Jelf and Ageas for their tremendous and continued support. Please visit their pages or ask them for quotes when renewing your insurance and be sure to mention where you heard of them!
Open for entries again!
So yes, we are open for entries yet again and we're looking forward to reading your nominations. The award categories remain the same:
The Jelf Award
The Jelf Award is open to any local Gloucestershire charity with an annual turnover of more than £200,000. Nominate your best corporate supporter and £1,000 could be yours!
The Ageas Award
The Ageas Award is open to any local Gloucestershire charity with an annual turnover of less than £200,000 a year. Nominate your best corporate supporter and £1,000 could be yours!
The Individual Award
We will accept one entry from any local Gloucestershire charity, regardless of income bracket. Nominate that one super special person, from a local Gloucestershire business, who always goes over and above to support your charity.
How to write a winning entry
We thought you might like to see the winning nominations from the 2018 awards, to give you an idea of what it takes to win. We hope you find it useful.
Support A Local Charity
We continue to run 'Support A Local Charity', asking local businesses to choose and support a local charity this year. It has became apparent to us that smaller charities, although desperately needing funds and support, often did not have the time, administration staff or experience to seek out corporate sponsors and enter awards. 'Support A Local Charity' aims to introduce small businesses to small charities who may be able to work together, offering not necessarily financial support but also skills share and mentoring.
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 entering the awards!
