Proud Winners of The Queen's Award for Voluntary Service

About us



The Pride of Bury Awards are to be held in memory and celebration of Joshua Wilson aka SuperJosh who was himself a Bury Hero.

The awards were founded by The Joshua Wilson Brain Tumour Charity and as such form a major part of the charities work.

The awards have been designed to recognise the contribution made by local ‘heroes’ living or working in Bury.

Dawn Fidler, Founder of The Joshua Wilson Brain Tumour Charity said, “There are many people who live and work in Bury, whose contributions to life, to teaching, to living and to caring, go un-thanked and unrecognised.

The categories reflect the contribution made by people in everyday life, and to highlight and celebrate that which makes Bury rightfully proud.”

This year we’d like to make sure that everyone who is nominated gets recognition, so we have decided to publish their names regularly. See the latest list of nominations here.

Please Note: Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic – the 2020 Awards are  postponed until Spring/Summer 2021.
