The More Radio Awards Worthing are back for 2018

With Saywell International, and Boom Credit Union.

On Friday 16th March we’ll be at the stunning Southern Pavilion on Worthing Pier, celebrating all that’s great about Worthing and the surrounding area, recognising everything from flourishing businesses, true community spirit, sporting brilliance and individuals with a heart of gold. If you know a group, business, or individual who would be a worthy recipient of one our Awards, please make sure you send us a nomination.

Nominations are now open in thirteen categories:

Charity of the Year – with Arundel Pianos

We’re looking for a group or individual who’s made a significant contribution to the community. Maybe they’ve campaigned for something we can all benefit from, improved the local area or made our community a safer place.

 Courage Award – with The Egremont Public House

The Courage Award looks to celebrate someone whose bravery has been tested, but who has remained resolute, even in the face of the most frightening or desperate circumstances

Inspiration Award – with Kardinal Healthcare

We want to give this next award to a group or individual who truly define the word inspiration.  Whether it be through one act of bravery of selflessness or years of determination and hard work. If you know someone inspiring in your life, please get nominating

Fundraiser of the Year – with Extreme Cars

This award recognises someone who raises funds for one or more of the amazing charities we have in our community. It’s not necessarily the person who has raised the most amount of money, maybe someone who really gives their time, heart and soul to charitable endeavours.

 Lifetime Achievement Award – with Gardiner & Scardifield

We want to recognise a local person whose life story is an inspiration to others. Someone who’s shown years of dedication to help others in the local community, or someone who’s overcome extraordinary odds to achieve success.

Parent In A Million – with Piccola Italia

We’re looking to recognise a special parent who’s love and commitment to their family knows no bounds, no matter what the circumstance. Don’t leave it to the kids to nominate – maybe it’s your spouse or friend that deserves this award?

Chris Copsey Gold Award – with Darren Crab Wealth Management

This is a very special award to celebrate a special individual, group or charity that have a real success story to tell and have really made a difference.

Sporting Excellence – with Pountney Tyres

We want to recognise a local individual or team who’ve excelled in their chosen sport over the last twelve months. It’s not necessarily about how many trophies are in the cabinet; skill, determination and teamwork are just as important.

Young Person of the Year – with Adur Home Improvements

We’re looking for a young person, under 18, who deserves special recognition. Whether they’ve had to overcome illness, disability or tough personal circumstances, or someone who has achieved something significant academically or through a talent.

Top Teacher – with The New Sussex Hotel

This is your chance to nominate the teacher, head teacher or teaching assistant who you think deserves ‘gold star’ recognition. We’re looking for someone whose true talent and passion lies in teaching and inspiring young people.

Best Business with Wall Bros Carpets & Flooring

Do you know of a local business that’s  flourishing? We’re looking for a local success story; a company that’s made gains in turnover, demonstrated great service and done an exceptional job of standing out from the crowd.

Best Eatery – with Arrow Taxis

Whether it’s a delicious bar snack at your local, or the most lavish fine dining experience, or something in between, we want to hear about the place that keeps you coming back for more.

Best New Business – with The Mahaan Restaurant

If you know of a company that’s been running for 18 months or less, and has shown outstanding potential and drive, or demonstrated excellent customer service, we want to hear about them.

About our sponsors

Boom Credit Union

Boom Credit Union is your local not-for-profit Credit Union, serving everybody that lives or works in West Sussex, Surrey and Kingston-upon-Thames.

We give local people access to fair and affordable loans, savings and current accounts; people who may otherwise be excluded from mainstream financial services that so many of us take for granted. We also offer ethical investment opportunities for those who want to see their money make a difference.

Boom exists to help make life fairer and better for local people. We enable thousands of people every year to escape the clutches of high-interest lenders and loan sharks. We make it our mission to prevent individuals and families from entering that never-ending spiral of debt. For many more we help them get out of this spiral, often when all hope seems to be lost.

Last year in West Sussex alone, we estimate that Boom loans kept over £2.3 million of your community’s money out of the pockets of unethical and high-interest lenders.

The Credit Union is Booming, with new members joining us every day.


This year we are pleased to be supporting the Care for Veterans charity
at our awards ceremony.

Care For Veterans

Care for Veterans support physically disabled ex-Service personnel of the past, present and future. Providing residential nursing care, rehabilitation, respite and end of life care to physically disabled ex-Service personnel and their families.
