Are you a local hero? Could you win £5,000 for your charitable initiative?

Marsh Commercial, one of the UK’s leading commercial insurance brokers, is looking for community heroes – both businesses and individuals who have given their time to good causes to enter their recently launched ‘For the People awards’.

Have you helped in a foodbank? Maintained your local green spaces? Helped a charity retrain the unemployed?

This award celebrates the businesses and individuals who have given their time, money or resources during 2020, to what really matters – helping their local communities. Enter yourself, your business, or nominate another and see a local community project win £5,000 of funding via their website. And for every validated entry, they’ll donate £10 to support The Silver Line, a charity that has excelled in supporting vulnerable older people this year.

To enter, nominees should make a short video (no longer than three minutes) about what they been up to. Videos can be recorded on a mobile phone and should be uploaded to Marsh Commercial’s website by mid-day on November 30.

Voting opens from December 1 opens so people should make sure they share their entry among their friends, family and colleagues to secure a place in the top five by December 21.

The top five entries in each category will be invited to a virtual chat with the awards panel, where they can learn more about your great work – and find the winners!
