Benenden Healthcare on board as main sponsor for York Community Pride Awards
30th April 2010
Benenden Healthcare has been welcomed on board as main sponsors of the York Community Pride Awards 2010, helping to celebrate the strength of the local York community.
The event, one of the York area’s premier occasions for celebrating the unsung stars of the local community, is run in partnership between The Press and City of York Council.
The ceremony takes place at York Racecourse in October and nominations are invited for a range of different categories with a closing date of Friday, July 23.
Lawrence Christensen, Head of Communications said: ‘These awards are about the power of the community, which is something Benenden Healthcare really values.
‘Last year we sponsored the Health Service Hero category and it was fascinating to attend the awards ceremony and listen to all the incredible stories of the finalists. This year we had the chance to sponsor the whole event and we jumped at the opportunity to take that on.
‘There are a huge amount of different projects in York as well as individuals doing amazing things in the community, and a lot of this goes under the radar. That’s why it’s so great that The Press puts on these awards so that people can learn about what’s going on.
‘These are the people of York’s awards and we want everyone to get involved by nominating the people they think deserve some recognition for what they do.’
