Local Business Charity Awards launch in Oxfordshire

The 2018 Local Business Charity Awards (Oxfordshire) have been launched for the first time in Oxfordshire.

The awards, which have been held annually in Gloucestershire since 2014, recognise the support given by Oxfordshire businesses and individuals to their local charities. There are three award categories to enter:

The Jelf Award – entries will be accepted from Oxfordshire charities (with an annual income of more than £200,000 a year) nominating an Oxfordshire business that supports them. If the company they nominated wins, the charity will receive a prize of £1,000.

The A-Plan Award – entries will be accepted from Oxfordshire charities (with an annual income of less than £200,000 a year) nominating an Oxfordshire business that supports them. If the company they nominated wins, the charity will receive a prize of £1,000.

The Individual Award – entries will be accepted from any Oxfordshire charity, nominating a person for their personal dedication and contribution to that charity. The prize is a £300 weekend away.

Judges will be looking for how much of an effect the company’s involvement has had on the charity; the extent to which the company has taken the charity to their hearts and the quality of the relationship between the two; they will also want to see how creative the company has been in supporting the charity and the long lasting benefits of the relationship.

 

 

The awards are now open for entries; entry to the awards is free and the closing date is Friday 1 June 2018. Finalists will be announced on Monday 18 June 2018, and they will be invited to attend awards finals on Thursday 5 July 2018.
