The More Radio East Sussex Awards 2020 are coming!
On Friday 11th September 2020, we ‘ll be celebrating all that’s great about our area, recognising everything from flourishing businesses, true community spirit, sporting brilliance and individuals with a heart of gold within East Sussex.
We’ll be awarding the achievements of some inspiring people, groups and organisations from across East Sussex, and we need you to make nominations in the following categories:
This 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.
This award recognises someone who raises funds for one or more of the amazing charities we have in our community. Not necessarily who has raised the most money, maybe someone who really gives their time, heart and soul to charitable endeavours.
Lifetime Achievement Award:
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 Award:
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?
Best Eatery Award:
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 going back for more.
Young Person Award:
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.
Campaigning for change, improving the local area or maybe making it a safer place. We’re looking for someone who’s made a huge contribution to the community.
We want to give this next award to someone who truly defines the word “inspiration”. Whether it be through one act of bravery of selflessness or years of determination and hard work.
Chris Copsey Gold Award:
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.
Best New Business Award:
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.
Charity Of The Year Award:
This award recognises a charity, or fundraising group who have worked tirelessly to really make an impact within West Sussex.
Best Business Award:
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.
Sporting Excellence Award:
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
Top Teacher Award:
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.
