2020’s Not-For-Profit Stars Revealed

By Anita Jaynes on 23 November, 2020

The Business Exchange is delighted to announce the finalists of Reward, our award scheme recognising charities and not-for-profits in 2020.

We launched the awards alongside our sponsors to champion the hard work and resilience of the Third Sector this year, one of those most affected by the pandemic. 

The award scheme was open to charities and not-for-profits across the South West with six categories to enter. Over 30 entries were received, and the judges had an incredibly difficult task creating a shortlist. All of our entrants should be commended for their fantastic work in what has been one of the hardest years on record. We applaud your tenacity, ingenuity, persistence and amazing achievements. We look forward to celebrating and showcasing your successes on awards night.
