The purpose of the awards is to recognise the outstanding effort of many local groups, organisations and individuals who went above and beyond during the coronavirus pandemic to help those in need, many of those groups also continue to do so.
Leader of Buckinghamshire Council, Martin Tett said: “We know there are so many people out there who have dedicated themselves to helping support others during this pandemic. The volume and breadth of their efforts must be recognised and rewarded in some way and so we have created our Proud of Bucks awards to do just that.”
We are delighted to help raise awareness of the Proud of Bucks awards. We have heard of many businesses in the Buckinghamshire community that have made a monumental effort to support their staff, customers and the wider community in any way they can, whether it be to help community groups with food donations, make PPE and raise money for local causes.
Please consider if you would like to nominate a person, group or organisation who you feel deserves recognition and praise. We would also encourage you to help raise the awareness for the awards within your own networks, so that as many people as possible have the chance to be recognised in this Buckinghamshire-wide event.
