Jelf and Ageas, sponsors of the 2017 Local Business Charity Awards, have announced this year’s winners

Following the event held at the National Star College, the awards, founded by Jelf in 2014 to recognise the support given specifically by Gloucestershire businesses to the county’s local charities, revealed their 2017 winners.

The winners are:

Winners of the Jelf Award – for charities who have an annual turnover of more than £100,000 a year

Name of company: The Coventry Building Society – (Cirencester Branch) Nominated by: Gloucestershire Deaf Association (GDA)

Winners of the Ageas Award – for charities who have an annual turnover of less than £100,000

Name of company: Skylight9 Nominated by: The Hollie Gazzard Trust

Winner of the Individual Award

Name of Individual and the company they work for: Helen Howe, Lumière Restaurant Nominated by: National Star

Winners of the Jelf and Ageas awards will win £1,000 each, to be donated to the charity who nominated them. The winner of the individual award will win a weekend away to the value of £250.

Sponsors Jelf and Ageas announced a surprise award on the night, the Mayor’s Award. Mayor Klara Sudbury was given £700 to give to a local charity of her choice who, because they are part of a national charity, or provide services outside of Gloucestershire, were not able to enter the awards themselves but still give tremendous support to people in Gloucestershire.

CEO of Jelf and Bluefin, founder of the awards Phil Barton said,‘ An extraordinary night, the presentations by the charities, talking about their finalists, were superb. Everyone at Jelf is so proud to have founded these awards; we could not be more delighted of the job they do, shining the light on the incredible lengths people and companies go to, to support their local Gloucestershire charities.’

Cathy Taylor, head of commercial underwriting and operations for Ageas echoed those thoughts, ‘As sponsors of the Local Business Charity Awards we have had the privilege of reading the nominations, detailing the fantastic charitable endeavours of many of our local businesses and individuals working within them. Tonight we have been regaled with further tales of selflessness and generosity that have been quite outstanding and of course, ultimately moving. We are delighted to be sponsors of these awards, alongside Jelf and send our warmest congratulations to all tonight’s winners.’

The judges for the 2017 awards were:

• Matt Holmes, editor of the Gloucestershire Echo

• Dame Janet Trotter DBE, the Lord Lieutenant of Gloucestershire

• Dr Diane Savory OBE, Chair of GFirst LEP

• Alex Chalk, MP for Cheltenham

• Phil Barton, CEO Jelf and Bluefin (sponsor)

• Cathy Taylor, Head of Commercial Underwriting and Operations of Ageas (sponsor)
