Pride of Brent Awards 2017

 

Pride of Brent awards logoNominations are now open for the 2017 Pride of Brent Awards, the new name for the ‘Brent Community Champions’ award scheme.

Just like the Brent Community Champions scheme, the Pride of Brent Awards celebrate those selfless individuals, community groups and local businesses who contribute so much to the borough and who have gone the extra mile to make Brent a better place to live and work in 2017.

You know who they are: they’re the ones who have dedicated their time to working for the benefit of their fellow residents and neighbours. People and groups who have devoted their time and energy to helping others in need, and quite often overcoming their own personal difficulties to do so.

These people come from all walks of life, from different backgrounds, ages and cultures. The positive impact of their work can be seen throughout life in Brent. They work in local voluntary and community groups, for charities, schools or places of worship and for local businesses that know why it is important to put something back into the community.

Nominate a community champion today and help us celebrate the people who really do put the Pride in Brent.
