Anyone that knows me well, will know I’m a super patriotic girlie; my bedroom at my parents is filled with Union Jack flags and I’m dead proud of the community I grew up in. So when it was brought to my attention that TSB has partnered up with Trinity Mirror’s Pride of Britain, which is the only awards event in the UK honouring everyday unsung heroes I was 100% on board. The Pride of Britain Awards showcases the public’s act of incredible courage, such as a long battle against the odds or inspirational campaigning. The event will be televised at the end of October from the Grosvenor House Hotel in London and an awe-inspiring, magical event. I’m on the guestlist right guys?!
The award I’m most interested about is the TSB Community Partner Award for local pride, which recognises and celebrates ordinary people who make amazing contributions to their local communities, the people that deserve their five minutes. TSB are mega proud to be part of a community where people help people and we all thrive together. And for me, I’m going to be nominating the Upminster Community Facebook Group; they do their best to ensure our lovely little town is kept clean from fly tippers, the gardens are always looking their best, and that residents are aware of any local events and news. I am on there daily to see if anything new is happening that I should be aware of. They do a lot for free and should be awarded for making our community a better place!
To celebrate the launch of the nominations, the Summer of Pride Tour will take place. This involves a team of Minis whizzing around the country stopping at TSB branches and various landmarks along the way; from London today where I caught up with them to take those super cute photos, they then head south to Brighton before visiting Bristol, Cardiff, Blackpool, Manchester, Liverpool, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Newcastle, York, Leeds, Birmingham and Norwich.
It’s a really fun way to get the public nominating someone they believe should be up for an award.
So, all that’s left is for you to decide who to nominate.
