Businesses keen to give something back to the local community are being called on to sponsor awards in the latest Spirit of Bromsgrove Awards.

The council’s prestigious Spirit of Bromsgrove Awards are designed to celebrate sporting, arts and community achievements of residents that have had a positive impact across the district over the last two years.

Local companies interested in giving something back to the community can sponsor an award of their choice from the selection below.

As a thank you for sponsoring an award, companies will receive tickets for the ceremony at Artrix on 19th April, a drinks reception and the opportunity to present their award and have photographs taken with the winners.
