Access Bedford has been nominated and shortlisted for the national Signature Community Spirit Award!
The awards, now in their ninth year, are an annual event to celebrate the individuals who are making positive changes and putting others first to improve communication and experiences for deaf and deafblind people.
This year’s ceremony is all about the superstars. The event will commemorate the unsung heroes, the people whose support can help us all achieve bigger and better things, and those who are a constant source of support and inspiration.
The Community Spirit Award will be chosen through a public vote – please support Access Bedford by voting for them in this award ceremony. You can vote online until November 10th with the winners announced at a glitzy event in Leeds on the same day.
