“We are pleased to announce that Anglia Ruskin University is supporting, for the fifth consecutive year, this very special campaign.


Also supporting us by providing a wonderful venue is Hylands House with Chicks Catering Services supplying refreshments.


The aim of this campaign is to recognise and reward local groups for the outstanding work and contributions they make within our communities every day of the year. All the money will be shared between local charities and projects that are nominated by you and then voted for by our readers.
