There are five catagories which can be entered into

Following the success of last year’s Perrys Exceptional Awards, the Oprington-based chartered accountants are launching a community awards campaign.

The awards, which celebrate the unsung heroes that go above and beyond the call of duty, are now open for nominations and Orpington residents are invited to take part.

Last year’s winners included Orpington residents JP and Lucy West who own The Fitness Link, which won the exceptional service award.

Five awards will be up for grabs this year with the categories confirmed as exceptional small charity, exceptional large charity, exceptional business, exceptional business community initiative, and exceptional individual.

All nominations will be judged by a panel from the local community and shortlisted finalists will receive two free tickets to the awards ceremony in November.

The winners will be announced during an evening in the surroundings of Leeds Castle.

Steve Hale, partner at Perrys, said: “The awards celebrate not only the community, but the individuals, charities and businesses that go to exceptional lengths to make a real difference to those around them, often with little reward or recognition.

“It is with this in mind that we are extremely excited to be launching the 2017 Perrys Exceptional Awards and can’t wait to uncover more hidden gems from the county that are quietly leading extraordinary lives, and performing outstanding acts, on behalf of those around them.

“We are so proud to be a part of such an incredible community and we encourage everyone to take part and nominate an individual, charity or business they feel is truly exceptional - whatever the reason we want to hear about them.”

To make a nomination please email with full details of the category you would like to enter along with the name of the charity, business or individual you are nominating.

The closing dates for nominations is July 31.
