The Charity Award

LHA2016FGPThis award can be presented to an individual or a charity itself. The individual may work for the charity, driving fundraising or awareness, or they may be a person who supports that charity voluntarily.

If nominating a charity, it could be an organisation making a difference in people's lives locally, and perhaps doesn't get the credit it deserves amongst the bigger, national charities.

The Sport Award

LHA2016WeyprintDorsetSchoolwareAt the top, you have sports stars earning millions of pounds who are household names. But who is looking after the grass roots on Dorset?

We're looking for either a promising local sports star, or even a team who have achieved beyond expectation.

It could also be someone who works behind the scenes to make sport happen for others - from the coach to the kit man to the groundskeeper.
