BBC Essex Make a Difference Awards

Posted on: March 28, 2022

I wanted to make you aware of something we’re really proud of.

This year BBC Essex wants to celebrate and say thank you to people living in our villages,
towns and cities who make where we live a better place.

Every day we hear stories of people doing incredible things for each other and their
communities. Now it’s time to recognise them for all their hard work.

Whether it’s caring for someone in need, being a brilliant neighbour, or inspiring children in
the classroom, if you know someone who is really making a difference to our lives then you
can nominate them for an Award.
There are 8 categories:
•            Volunteer
•            Community Group
•            Fundraiser
•            Carer
•            Great Neighbour
•            Key Worker
•            Environment
•            Together award

We’re delighted to have twelve prestigious judges from Essex on the awards panel this year including Sally Gunnell OBE, Russell Kane, Lee Mead, Barry Hearne MBE, Bishop Guli Francis-Dehqani and Lance Corporal Richard Jones.

You can nominate someone you know at, where you can also see full Terms and our Privacy Notice. Nominations are now open and will close on the 29th of April 2022 at 11:00pm. The winners will be announced at our Make a Difference awards ceremony in September.
