A new awards scheme to recognise some of the incredible work going on across Shropshire during the Covid-19 pandemic has been launched by the county’s Chamber of Commerce.
A Chamber spokesman said: “These challenging times have certainly bought about so many amazing stories of how organisations and individuals have got involved and made a real difference and who deserve the recognition of the entire business community.”
The awards will be live streamed from a specially constructed TV studio on Friday, July 17 from 7pm – 8:30pm. The closing date for entries is midnight on Friday June 26.
The event, hosted by Shropshire Business editor Carl Jones and produced by the award-winning team at Yarrington in Shrewsbury, will feature seven main awards, all of which recognise community-minded achievements during the coronavirus pandemic.
The categories are:
• Champion of Champions 2020
• Charity Champions
• Entrepreneurial Spirit
• Good Neighbour
• Service to the Community
• Valiant Volunteer
• Unsung Hero Viewers will get chance to take part in an online vote, and there will be a few other surprises too – including the appearance of some celebrity guests.
The event will also be supporting Shropshire Mind and Shropshire Domestic Abuse Service.
