Local People Receiving An Award for their Kind Deeds During Lockdown
Dates: 16 Aug 2020 - 22 Aug 2020
You’ve got to admit the last four months have tested all of us. If you are a caring and kind person you would have responded to an almost ‘call to action’ to those that need your genuine, loving concern.
It was announced on Monday (July 13th) that not-for profit organisation Active Lancashire are teaming up with Collinson Construction once again to bring you an online event ‘A Little Bit More at Home’ recognition awards.
The awards are primarily designed to recognise the amazing work individuals and groups have excelled at in supporting others for their physical and mental health needs during lockdown.
The awards will be announced in a series of five categories, including:-
- Be physically active
- Connect with others
- Give to others
- Learn new skills
- Take notice
An additional sixth category will focus on Workplace Health to acknowledge the efforts of local businesses in supporting their workforces during the current pandemic.
Lockdown has created a decline in people associating freely together which has caused social withdrawal and poor mental and physical health overall.
Selfless people have risen to the challenge and they will be paid tribute very soon. The award will come in the form of a gift specific to circumstances as opposed to a trophy, which is more appropriate considering current conditions have left clubs, coaches and volunteers with reduced financial income and resources to be able to deliver activities inclusively across the community.
Active Lancashire have some history with Collinson Construction and are delighted to be working with them again.
Rob Duxbury, Managing Director from Collinson spoke recently on what the collaboration and the awards mean to him,
“We are proud to be headline sponsors of the #ALittlebitmoreathome Recognition Awards, and supporting Active Lancashire for another year running. This campaign has really highlighted the fantastic work which has been ongoing in our local communities and the commitment shown by so many. We hope these awards go some way to recognising this, as well as supporting local communities and clubs.”
Please continue to visit the CCG website for updates on the awards. The event will be an online ceremony and will take place over the course of a week from Monday 17th August. There will be no external nomination process.
Saluting unsung heroes coming direct to your homes.
