Last night Bristol Energy was the proud sponsor of The Voscur’s, an awards ceremony to celebrate the best of Bristol’s voluntary sector.
The Bristol Energy team joined Mayor of Bristol Marvin Rees and TV personality Sherrie Eugene-Hart to congratulate the winners, which included Baby Bank Network for Volunteer Team of the Year and April Steward, who was given Young Volunteer of the Year for her work at Lawrence Weston Community Farm.
We are determined to do things differently as a gas and electricity company. Supporting the charity and voluntary sector is just one way we can do this.
- Our partnership with Caring in Bristol is raising money to support homeless people in the city just by people switching to us.
- And our business team provides electricity that’s powering the UK’s first Modern Slavery Helpline.
Mayor of Bristol Marvin Rees shared his own Bristol Energy story, telling guests about his £250 saving, and the millions of pounds that could be saved across the city if people switch to Bristol Energy. And he encouraged everyone in the room to join us too.
Bristol Energy warmly congratulates all of last night’s award winners:
- The Welcome Committee & Ashley Community Housing, joint winners of the Batook Pandya award for Inclusion
- Baby Bank Network, Volunteer Team of the Year
- Lifeskills, winner of the Happy, Healthy Bristol award
- The Park Community Centre Community, Venue of the Year
- Becky Gilbert, Trustee of the Year for dedication to Baby Bank Network
- April Steward, Young Volunteer of the Year for her work at Lawrence Weston Community Farm
- Natalie Bailey, Manger for Public Health at Bristol Council Centre, received the Supporting the Sector award.
Partnerships Manager, Michael Lloyd Jones said: “All in all it was a fantastic and inspiring event. We’re really proud of the partnerships we’ve already established with local charities in Bristol and we’re looking forward to developing lots more as we move into our second year of business.”
Congratulations to all the winners, and to the entire voluntary sector in Bristol.
