We’ve been flooded with your TSB Community Partner Award nominations – but there’s still time for you to help us find this year’s winners
The TSB Community Partner Award, part of the Pride of Britain Awards, celebrates incredible local people who help to make their communities better places to live. Do you know a person or group who has positively transformed their local area or the lives of its residents? If so, why not nominate them for an award?
One such person is 2016 award-winner Billy Muir. Tireless grandfather Billy has 20 jobs on the small Orkney island of North Ronaldsay, including firefighter, shepherd, lighthouse keeper and tour guide.
Peter Andre, who joined the Daily Mirror and TSB on the Summer of Pride nominations tour, said: “Times are changing, but communities are getting stronger. What makes a community work is teamwork. If everyone gives, collectively you’re going to achieve a lot.”
This year’s nominations have already thrown light on some truly compelling stories, and it’s not too late for you to add to that list of incredible people.
The CEO of TSB, Paul Pester, said: “We know just how much is happening each and every day in every community and we want to recognise those ordinary people doing extraordinary things. So please start nominating for Pride of Britain – a celebration of individuals and groups who work tirelessly to help their local communities.”
TSB is committed to local communities. Its Local Charity Partnerships programme encourages TSB branches to support local independent causes, rather than a single national charity of the year.
The Pride of Britain Awards 2017 will be screened on ITV on Tuesday 31 October.
