Nominate ‘exceptional’ Kent people for Perry’s community awards

    LAST YEAR’S WINNERS (L-r) JP West, Lucy West, Fran Long, Fred Long, Farhad Ismail, Stewart Pope, Jenny Hirani, Helen Wathen and Jill Tompkins

    CHARTERED accountants Perrys, of Tunbridge Wells, are seeking nominations for their community awards, which recognise ‘inspirational and exceptional’ individuals, charities and businesses across Kent.

    Perrys Exceptional Awards will celebrate the ‘unsung heroes who go above and beyond the call of duty to bring positive change to the communities around them’.

    Last year’s winners included Fred and Fran Long from Tonbridge, who volunteer tirelessly on behalf of community groups and charity projects.

    Five categories of the Exceptional Awards will be up for grabs this year: Small Charity, Large -Charity, Business, Business Community Initiative and Individual.

    All nominations will be judged by a panel from the local community, and shortlisted finalists will receive two free tickets to the awards ceremony at Leeds Castle in November.

    Stewart Pope, Chief Executive at Perrys, said: “The awards celebrate not only the community of Kent, but the individuals, charities and businesses that go to exceptional lengths to make a real difference to those around them, often with little reward or recognition.

    “We are so proud to be a part of such an incredible community, and we encourage everyone to take part and nominate an individual, charity or business they feel is truly exceptional – whatever the reason, we want to hear about them.”

    To make a nomination, just send an email with the category you would like to enter, along with the name of the charity, business or individual you are nominating, to the following email address: exceptionalawards@pmwcom.co.uk

    The closing dates for nominations is July 31. For more details, visit www.perrysaccountants.co.uk/exceptional-awards-2017
