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.

Now more than ever, we need your help to fund the Bedford Independent’s quality journalism that serves our community...

We choose to champion editorial independence, meaning we report the facts without bias and can stand up to those in power when we believe it’s needed.

We can give a voice to people in our community whose voices may otherwise not be heard. And we don’t have a paywall, so everyone can read the stories we publish for free.

But in this time of crisis, many news organisations all over the world are facing existential threat, with advertising revenues plummeting. We’re no different.

We work hard every day to bring you news, commentary, entertainment and announcements from across Bedford. We hope that, with your help, we’ll be able to continue this for many years to come.
