The nominations for this year’s Bedford Independent Awards – in partnership with the Harpur Trust – are flooding in, so don’t miss the chance to nominate your local everyday hero or why not put yourself forward?
We are looking for Bedford’s unsung heroes. This could be a good neighbour, community hero or act of bravery.
Do you know someone who has done something outstanding to help others but may now fit into any of our other categories?
This is our broadest category and we want to hear inspirational stories about great Bedfordians.
Everyone who is shortlisted will be invited to the ceremony on 23 April at The Quarry Theatre in the heart of Bedford.
The winners will be invited to collect their framed award certificate plus, as a thank you for their achievements, they will receive a voucher to spend at The Bedford Swan Hotel.
Each successful shortlisted nominee and their guest will be invited to the informal awards ceremony taking place in the beautiful surroundings of the Quarry Theatre.
Jim Gill, Regional Manager, Marston’s Beer Company, who are sponsoring the award, said “Eagle Brewery are delighted to be involved in the inaugural Bedford Independent Awards and as the leading Brewer in the town, a major employer in the area and a supporter of great local causes.
“We are honoured to sponsor the Unsung Hero award as there are so many individuals in Bedford who contribute brilliantly to the local community and their work so often goes unnoticed by many and unrewarded.”
Nominating is simple and all completed forms should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday 28 February.
What are you waiting for? Let’s get celebrating Bedford’s everyday heroes.
