The 2023/2024 campaign deadline has been extended until midnight on Sunday (March 17), and organisers have outlined plans for an awards ceremony to be held on Monday April, 15 where winners will be announced.

The awards are designed to shine a light on the people, groups and organisations who go above and beyond to help others and to honour persons who are making significant contributions to their community through their time, actions, talents and dedication (outside any volunteer work done for their employer) across the Boston Borough area.
