Community Link-Up 2013 Awards: The Nominations

We may have woken up to the news of this year’s Oscar winners, but here at Community Link-Up we’re proud to announce some Awards of our own. Today’s special eNewsletter [which you will have received separately – Ed] celebrates the winners of 2013’s Community Link-Up Awards. The judges were impressed by the diversity and quality of all the nominations and found it hard to make their final decisions.

Therefore, it’s appropriate we celebrate all the other nominees in today’s post. So sit back and enjoy the slide show, which looks back at the nominees’ hard work and the events they organised, where they were reported here on Community Link-Up. Then give a huge round of applause for this year’s roll of honour…
