September 5th, 2011 by Guernsey Community Foundation

The Community Awards established by The Guernsey Community Foundation is the first ever such Awards programme in the Bailiwick of Guernsey that will formally applaud and recognise local charities, individuals and corporations in Guernsey who raise money for charities and embark on community projects for the benefit of others both across the Bailiwick and further afield.

The Community Awards, whose principal sponsor is State Street Global Services, along with the Guernsey Chamber of Commerce, Schroders Private Banking, Specsavers and Sportingbet, are a celebration of community spirit.

Five individual awards will be presented at a special afternoon of celebration and recognition on Wednesday 9 November 2011 at St. James’ Concert & Assembly Hall.

Guernsey is well known for its exceptional effort and ability to raise money and contribute many hours of voluntary work to the benefit of individuals and communities inside and outside of the Bailiwick.

Whether it is a fundraising project run by a local charity, a group of individuals or teams from corporate organisations, or members of the public who simply feel motivated to come together to benefit a chariable cause – Guernsey punches well above its weight.
