Simon’s Heroes recognised for its fantastic work in the local community

Tamworth children’s charity Simon’s Heroes has been recognised for its life-changing work in the community with a special certificate at the Tamworth Business and Community Awards.

The charity, which supports children with disabilities and life-limiting illnesses, was shortlisted for a Community Group of the Year award, which acknowledges the incredible and selfless work that so many organisations carry out in the local community.

Competition was tough, with all nominees deserving of the accolade. While Simon’s Heroes narrowly missed out on the overall award to Tamworth Boxing Club, it was presented with a certificate of recognition for the fantastic work it does providing resources and opportunities to local children with life-limiting illnesses. The charity continues to grow from strength to strength and now has over 70 dedicated members who volunteer their time to help make a difference to local children in need.

Winners of 12 categories across business and community, ranging from retailers to eateries and service businesses, to entrepreneurs and charity groups, were revealed at the black tie dinner held in Drayton Manor Park’s Tower Suite on October 5th.

Guests were greeted by a red carpet entrance, followed by a three-course meal and then an evening of awards and celebration.

Rebecca Vine, Trustee of Simon’s Heroes said: “We had a fantastic evening and were thrilled to receive our certificate! Thank you to everyone that supported our nomination. Congratulations to all of the winners and nominees and to Dave Harper and Andy Smith for organising such a fabulous event that recognises so many successful businesses and individuals.”
