How the Community Awards work


Customers nominate a community project that's close to their heart.

They choose an award category and funding level for the project and provide information. Nominated projects are checked to make sure they meet our Terms & Conditions and eligible projects then go forward to a public vote.


The winners of our Community Awards are determined by an online public vote.

During the voting phase individual projects rally support and the winners are the projects which receive the most votes.



Once votes have been checked and verified the Community Awards winners in their respective categories and funding levels are announced.

Take a look at the 2017 winning projects here.
