Community Regular Hero (England, Wales & Scotland categories)
Recognising an individual or group of customers who help the pub’s fundraising efforts or its work to support the community. They often take on thankless tasks for little reward, so if you have a loyal regular who has helped your pub to help others locally, then nominate them for this award.
Community Support Pub Hero (England, Wales & Scotland categories)
Recognising licensees who help their communities. Many pubs offered vital support during lockdown: delivering supplies or cooking hot meals for vulnerable residents, or keeping people connected through online quizzes or chats. If your pub is a ‘good neighbour’ to your local community, then this award is for you.
Charity Fundraising Pub Hero (England, Wales & Scotland categories)
Recognising pubs who support charities and other good causes through fundraising. This can be through a collection tin on the bar, charity events ranging from quizzes or auctions through to fun days, or sponsored challenges by the licensee, team members or pub customers.
Community Sport Hero (England, Wales & Scotland categories)
Recognising a pub that truly supports grassroots sport in its area or brings the community together via sporting events.
Community Sustainability Hero (England, Wales & Scotland categories)
Recognising the efforts of a pub going above and beyond in terms of helping to protect the environment locally.
