The ‘People Can’ Community Star Awards, presented by the Lord Mayor, and kindly sponsored by the Telegraph and Argus, Better Start Bradford, Incommunities Housing Association and Bradford Council: Stronger Communities Partnership
Each year we ask you to nominate your Community Stars, that special individual or organisation that goes the extra mile to help others in the community?
Here are your winners and finalists
The awards, organised by People Can and supported by the Telegraph & Argus, are designed to give recognition to those striving to make a difference in their local communities.
Lord Mayor of Bradford, Councillor Doreen Lee said: “As Lord Mayor, I am very privileged to see a lot of wonderful work going on throughout the local community. Some of it can be unrecognised and unappreciated, so it is marvelous that we can all play a part in remedying this.
This year the Lord Mayor created a new Special Recognition Award in light of one person receiving 31 nominations over a number of categories. The winner of this was Ashlee Holt who created Remembugs, small hand painted stones in memory of passed loved one. Each stone is unique and when complete is placed out in the community with a message attached for the finder to take it on a journey and post pictures to Tribe Rocks in each new location to keep the memory of people’s loved ones alive.
