The Co-op of the Year Awards are not going to be held this year, in light of the current COVID19 pandemic and restrictions on travel and large gatherings.
We did consider holding the awards remotely, as a way of sharing some positive news, but felt that in the circumstances people are concentrating on doing the best they can to support their co-ops, communities and families, and that the awards may be an unnecessary distraction.
Thank you to everyone who took the time to nominate a co-op or an individual for an award. We will be contact you next year to ask if you would like us to consider your nomination as part of the 2021 awards.
We are planning to make next year's awards bigger and better, as we come back together again to celebrate the amazing co-ops and people that work within our inspiring sector.
We're delighted that the Co-operative Bank are on board as sponsors next year, and we look forward to seeing you then.
