Category Information

This new award recognises an organisation or individual who has gone above and beyond for the benefit of others, outside of the remit of their day-to-day job. Maybe they have exceeded a personal goal or made a significant contribution to their community. Achievements could include anything from fundraising, environmental initiatives to community work or CSR. Entrants can nominate themselves or be nominated by employers, colleagues or beneficiaries. The nominating individual will need to support the entry with clear evidence of the nominee’s achievements and good work.

Judges will be looking for:

  • Evidence of successful projects carried out and the positive impacts these projects or project has had
  • Testimonials
  • Why the individual or organisation deserves to win
  • Going the extra mile – achievements beyond the nominee’s daily role

For any queries regarding your entry, please get in touch with the Chamber Team at
