It’s not very often you can bring an entire community together, from the ages of 9-years-old to 90-years-old, under one roof to celebrate the hard work of individuals and raise vital funds for a charity close to people’s hearts. The Promenades Extraordinary People Awards does just that and more.
We are delighted the awards initiative is returning for a second year to celebrate local unsung hero’s and this year we will be raising funds for RNLI Bridlington – the centre’s nominated charity. This year we have some brand-new categories and nominations are open until 30th September. If you know someone who’s hard work deserves to be recognised, whether it be highly visible or more discreet, please fill out the form below.
The glamorous awards ceremony will be hosted by BBC broadcaster Blair Jacobs, at the town’s most impressive historical landmark – The Spa Bridlington, where guests will enjoy a three-course fine dining experience and first-class entertainment. Tickets are on sale now until Friday 3rd November and can be purchased from The Spa Box Office.
We also have a range of exciting sponsorship opportunities, which presents a chance for your business to benefit from giving something back to individuals that go the extra mile. Download your brochure here.
