The new HIVE – IN IT TOGETHER RECOGNITION AWARDS will shine a light on the Borough, and HIVE are calling on YOU for your help with nominations, which need to be submitted before Friday, 23rd October 2020.

Chairman of HIVE, Ian Brown said: “In these unprecedented times it has been heart-warming and humbling to see the communities of Blackburn with Darwen come together to support each other, our key workers and of course our NHS.

Whilst is isn’t feasible to host our annual business awards we couldn’t let the opportunity pass to recognise those employees, teams, organisations and businesses that really have gone above and beyond in a time of national crisis.

“The innovation, commitment, tenacity and dedication has been unwavering, and this is our chance to thank those unsung heroes as we launch the all knew HIVE – IN IT TOGETHER RECOGNITION AWARDS. But we need your support and nominations to help us to do this.”
