Shared on behalf of the East Midlands Charity Awards

After a successful launch, we are back to celebrate in 2020!  East Midlands charities and not-for-profit organisations now have an opportunity to be celebrated and recognised for their outstanding contributions to their communities. The awards have been created to shout about all the great things charities have been doing in the East Midlands.

Charities are the soul of every community and now more than ever we need to stand together. As the Coronavirus continues to impact all of us, I wanted to take a moment to say thank you. To all our charities, social leaders and individuals across the sector who are making a positive impact; giving opportunities, refuge, care and guidance for some of our community’s most affected.

These are uncertain times for all of us, please remember to be kind and stay safe. Use this time at home to reflect and nominate the people and charities who are going above and beyond to improve our communities. Welcoming entries from Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Northamptonshire and Lincolnshire.. (Free to Enter)
