Entries and sponsors are beginning to come in for this year’s Pride of Malton and Norton Awards.
There are three weeks left for members of the public to nominate someone who they believe deserves recognition for their dedication to the community in which they live.
Mandy West, chairman of We Love Malton, the event organisers, said: “We have had a good number of entries arrive in the past fortnight – but we need more, especially among teachers.
“So, if you know of anyone, young or old, who is worthy of a recognition, please do not hesitate to pick up a nomination form from local shops or the We Love Malton website.”
There are six categories in which to nominate people including The Customer Service Award, Volunteer of the Year, Business Personality of the Year, Local Hero, Teacher of the Year, Bright Young Star and the Outstanding Achievement Award.
A number of businesses have come forward to nominate the different categories including McClarrons Ltd (Bright Young Star), Ray Chapman Motors (Customer Service Award), Spectrum Solicitors (Volunteer of the Year), and No. 1 Health and Beauty & Brows (Local Hero).
Any business or organisation interested in sponsoring the awards should contact Steven Swift, c/o McClarrons Ltd, The Vines, 29 Market Place, Malton, or by telephone on (01653) 697055. Alternatively, contact Mandy West on (01653) 699730.
