Vote for your fundraising hero in the Bedford Independent Awards

volunteer charity fundraiser

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?

Our Fundraiser of the Year award honours an individual who has worked tirelessly to raise funds for a single cause or many different causes. Applications need to demonstrate how nominees have gone above and beyond the norm to inspire and motivate others to donate.
