A new awards scheme to recognise some of the incredible work going on across Shropshire during the Covid-19 pandemic has been launched by the county’s Chamber of Commerce.
The Chamber Champions Awards will celebrate the inspiring and inventive way the county’s business community has responded to the crisis and the community spirit they have helped generate.
A Chamber spokesman said: "These challenging times have certainly bought about so many amazing stories of how organisations and individuals have got involved and made a real difference and who deserve the recognition of the entire business community."
The awards will be live streamed from a specially constructed TV studio on Friday, July 17 from 7pm – 8:30pm. The closing date for entries is midnight on Friday June 26.
The event, hosted by Shropshire Business editor Carl Jones and produced by the award-winning team at Yarrington in Shrewsbury, will feature seven main awards, all of which recognise community-minded achievements during the coronavirus pandemic.
The categories are:
• Champion of Champions 2020
• Charity Champions
• Entrepreneurial Spirit
• Good Neighbour
• Service to the Community
• Valiant Volunteer
• Unsung Hero Viewers will get chance to take part in an online vote, and there will be a few other surprises too – including the appearance of some celebrity guests.
