Blooming Strong Awards: nominations open!

Posted October 30, 2018

November 25th every year marks the United Nations day for the Elimination of Violence against Women. Standing Together use this time of year to celebrate the strength of women who have survived gender-based violence, or supported someone who has done so.

This year, the Building Communities Together Team are joining the campaign to celebrate the strength and support of women in local West Berkshire communities and organisations.

As part of this celebration, BCT will present Blooming Strong Awards to those nominated to show how ‘Blooming Strong’ they are.

It is important to note that both survivors and women working with survivors can be nominated.  It could be in recognition for a particular struggle that has been overcome or going the extra mile for someone.

Should you like to nominate someone to receive a flower and an award on 22nd November to celebrate the UN day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, please complete this form and return it to westberksbct@westberks.gov.uk by Thursday 8th November 2018.

Please note that all of those nominated will receive the award, along with a message telling them why they have been nominated, who by and of course how Blooming Strong they are!
