Our Love Where You Live Awards are back!

022 Sf Wdh Love Where You Live Awards 2023

Our annual Love Where You Live Awards are back, and nominations are open for you to spotlight your community heroes.

You are invited to nominate those who go the extra mile to make a difference across the Wakefield area in eight categories. Thanks to our grounds and maintenance partners and event sponsors Tivoli, the top three in each category take home a cash prize of £200, £100 or £50.

Since 2011, we have celebrated almost 100 groups and individuals through the awards and  given over £30,000 in prizes. Last year’s event saw a record number of 201 nominations whittled down to just eight winners and we’re back to ask for your nominations for 2024.

WDH’s Chief Executive Andy Wallhead, said: "Each year our Love Where You Live Awards celebrate some of the most incredible people and groups from across this area. Last year we received 201 nominations highlighting just how much great work is being done to make Wakefield a fantastic place to live.

“The awards night itself is a brilliant opportunity to celebrate the dedication that has seen these people put so much back into their communities. For the 2024 awards, we’re once again asking for your support and nominations as we look to reward the people who work hardest to improve the lives of others.”

Nominations for this year’s awards are open from Monday, 1 July 2024 and close on Wednesday, 31 July 2024.
