THE COVID COMMUNITY CHAMPION AWARD: NEW
Independent retailers are the beating heart of local high streets. Forced to shop closer to home because of the pandemic and social restrictions, consumers are relearning the value of supporting small, local businesses. This award will recognise efforts to give back to local communities throughout the pandemic, such as charity fundraising, launching new services for the community, creating personal protection equipment and going the extra mile for local customers.
This award is open to anyone that is a champion of their community – an individual, member of staff, team or business.
The award applies specifically to projects and work done from March 2020 onwards.
Criteria against which you will be judged:
- Has this person, team or retailer gone above and beyond to support their local community during the pandemic? What have they done?
- What impact has this had on the community?
