Nominations are now open for the Proud of Bucks Awards
Nominations are now open for Buckinghamshire Council’s Proud of Bucks Awards 2022 – generously sponsored by The Clare Foundation.
The awards aim to recognise and celebrate outstanding community contribution carried out by local volunteers, groups and organisations during 2022. They acknowledge Buckinghamshire’s communities that have made a positive impact in their local areas.
Just like last year, each of Buckinghamshire’s 16 Community Boards will be celebrating local people in three award categories. Members of the public are invited to send in their nominations for those who they feel deserve recognition and praise. The three award categories are:
Local Community Champion – For an individual (aged 21 and over) who has made a clear and positive impact in their local community during 2022.
Young Community Champion – For a young person (under age 21) who has made a clear and positive impact in their local community or towards their peers during 2022.
Community Group Contribution – Recognises and celebrates a group in the Community Board area who has made a clear and positive impact on the community during 2022.
There are lots of ways to nominate someone for a Proud of Bucks Award, including submitting a nomination online or downloading a form and returning it by email. People can also visit their local Buckinghamshire library to pick up or drop off a printed paper copy. Find out more at: www.buckinghamshire.gov.uk/PoB-awards
The closing date for nominations is Sunday 12 February. Nominations will be reviewed by a panel of judges and the winners will be announced in the spring.
Steve Bowles, Cabinet Member for Communities, commented:
“The Proud of Bucks Awards is a fantastic way to celebrate all those who have gone above and beyond in their local community. I’m delighted our Community Boards will be recognising and honouring their local adults, young people and groups in each of Buckinghamshire’s amazing communities.
“Whether you have directly benefited from an initiative in your local area in 2022 or you know someone who has wowed you with their efforts, enthusiasm and innovation, we want to hear from you!”
Mike Clare, Founder and Chairman of The Clare Foundation said:
“The Clare Foundation is delighted to be sponsoring the Proud of Bucks Awards for the third year running. We are really pleased to be able to congratulate those who have gone above and beyond helping those in need in their local community. We look forward to hearing all the amazing stories from the individuals and groups who have made an impact.”
