Nominations are now open for The Blossom Awards which recognise the contribution of British-Chinese people to the environmental, sustainability and heritage sectors – and our national life. Visit their website for information & to make your own nomination: www.TheBlossomAwards.org.uk
Co-founded by Alan Mak, the UK’s first ever MP of British-Chinese heritage, the Awards aim to recognise unsung heroes, promising talent and success stories from the British-Chinese Community.
The Awards have gained the support of Alan Yau OBE, entrepreneur and founder of the Wagamama noodle bar chain and Michelin-starred restaurants Hakassan and Yauatcha.
The Awards include a specific category for “Environment and Sustainability” covering a wide range of disciplines including anyone working or volunteering in environmental stewardship, wildlife, heritage, conservation, the natural or built environment and renewable energy. This could be in a corporate, charitable, public sector, campaigning or third sector context or workplace.
Alan Mak MP said: “British Chinese people are doing inspirational work in the environmental, sustainability and heritage sectors. The Blossom Awards shine a light on British-Chinese people and their success and contributions. From renewable energy and environmental stewardship to conservation and wildlife, British-Chinese people are making a significant contribution to making the UK a better place to live, work and visit. These Awards enable British-Chinese people to challenge outdated perceptions about their identity. Please encourage a friend, family member, neighbour or colleague who deserves recognition to nominate themselves.”
Nominations close on Friday 12 June 2020 and must be submitted online: www.TheBlossomAwards.org.uk
Award Winners will be invited to a ceremony in central London in late October 2020.
