Community Trust Nominated for Hyndburn Business Awards

Accrington Stanley Community Trust have been nominated for the Hyndburn Business Awards at the 2018 event in June for the third successive year.

We are nominated for the Beacon Award which is the top award at Hyndburn Business Awards 2018. We are also expected to be in the categories of small business and community business.

This follows on from winning Hyndburn Community Business of the Year in 2016, and being a finalist in the same award in 2017.

Martin Fearon, CEO of Accrington Stanley Community Trust said ‘’we are delighted to have been nominated for this award. Over the past 12 months we have continued to grow and 2017 has been another fantastic year for the charity. A big focus has been the planning of our proposed new multi-million pound sports hub facility in Accrington.

We believe that by creating better facilities and having a fit for purpose base for the charity, we can deliver even more projects in our community and achieve amazing outcomes that will change local people’s lives. We plan to be here for the long term and have an ambition of becoming the leading community engagement charity in the borough.’’
