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 are supported by The Bury Times have been designed to recognise the contribution made by other 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.

Award Nominations will be open online from December 2018. After this the public will be invited to shortlist each category and vote for their finalists.

The final three nominations chosen in each category will be invited to a black tie Awards ceremony at The Village Hotel on Friday 25th October 2019.

The Village Hotel has a special place in the heart of the Charity, so it is wonderful that we are able to host the event here for the fifth year running.
