In just 2 years The Yorkshire Choice Awards has grown considerably, celebrating inspirational Yorkshire folk.
This year received a record 266,403 registered votes for nominees and gained enormous press coverage from radio, print and media in Yorkshire.
In the last two years, The Yorkshire Choice Awards has donated £20,616.99 to Yorkshire charities.
As you all know the awards chosen charity in 2017 was The Danny Jones Defibrillator Fund and Co-Founders Jo Maltby and Melanie Malcolm were delighted to attend The DJ Defib Ball to present Lizzie Jones with a cheque for £12,428. This outstanding figure helped Lizzie smash through her £50,000 target!
We are extremely proud to be part of an event that not only highlights amazing people in Yorkshire but can help raise vital funds for charity. Thank you to all our sponsors and everyone that attended the Yorkshire Choice Awards 2017 you all contributed to this amazing figure. That's almost 13 defibrillators that can make a huge difference.
Nominations will open on 1st June 2018 - follow us on our social media account or visit www.yorkshirechoiceawards.co.uk
