Nominate your community hero

27 May 2020

We've launched 'Bristol Energy's Community Heroes' to highlight local, unsung heroes powering positivity amid Covid-19.

Nominate your community hero and together we'll highlight local champions and reward a special someone with a family ticket to the Wild Place Project.

The Wild Place Project

Amid Covid-19, many of us are looking for a silver lining to brighten our days, and to be inspired by those doing good at a time where kindness is needed more than ever.

We’ve been so touched by the support and dedication from people during this difficult period, from the legendary Captain Tom Moore’s fundraising efforts, to the time given up by volunteers - including our amazing Smart Data Manager Emma, a volunteer Special Constable in response to the national emergency.

Thankfully, some good has emerged from the pandemic. And so, in recognition and appreciation of people making a difference – the bright sparks practising acts of kindness – we’ve launched ‘Bristol Energy’s Community Heroes’.

‘Bristol Energy’s Community Heroes’

Bristol Energy was set up as a force for social good. We want to reward those doing social good and powering positive energy in our communities; whether they’re delivering essentials to vulnerable neighbours, working tirelessly on the frontline or simply making you smile when it may feel there’s not a lot to smile about.

Nurses, carers, teachers, fundraisers, parents, siblings – maybe it’s your postman, binman, or the local shop donating personal protective equipment to those in need of it. Tell us, who’s brightening your day? We’re pleased to have partnered with our friends at the Wild Place Project, who’ve been powered by our green electricity and lower carbon gas since 2019, to play our part in thanking community heroes.

Over the next two weeks, we’re asking you to nominate your community hero, so we can highlight all the amazing people doing good and treat a special someone to a family ticket (admission for two adults and two children) to the Wild Place Project as a thank you from all of us.*

How to nominate your community hero

It’s quick and easy to nominate your hero. Simply:

  • Tag Bristol Energy in a post on social media (Twitter, Facebook or Instagram) or reply in the comment section on one of our social media posts about the campaign.

  • Or email your nomination to press@bristol-energy.co.uk.

  • Remember to let us know why they deserve a treat.

  • Please make sure you’ve asked your nominee if they’re happy to be named, as we’ll be sharing all the lovely stories of community heroes with the world.

To give us all a buzz, we’ll highlight all the inspirational nominees over the next two weeks, shortlist the submissions and then ask the public to vote for a winner. Together, let’s shout out our hidden, unsung heroes, celebrate community spirit and reward someone who’s going above and beyond.
