Community Champion Award 2018

Community Champion Award 2018Our Community Champion Award scheme - which recognises the spirit of individuals and community groups who work on a voluntary basis to make their community cleaner, safer and greener - is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year.

  • litter picking in your area
  • helping others to recycle right
  • conservation work
  • creating a community green space by planting trees/flower beds
  • setting up a Neighbourhood Watch scheme.

The list is endless. The award scheme is open to all ages and no activity is too big or too small. Take a look at our previous winners.
