Nominations are open for the 2017 Amplifon Awards for Brave Britons.

The Amplifon Awards for Brave Britons

Help us find the 'Best of British'

Returning for a second year, The Amplifon Awards for Brave Britons is in memory of our founder and British war hero Charles Holland.

We are conducting a nationwide search for 'The Best of British' - those truely who are an example to us all. 

 

 

The Awards

To honour Charles' valiant action during the Second World War, these awards celebrate the achievements of exceptional people from all walks of life, of all ages and from all over the United Kingdom and Ireland.

We're looking for members of the public and also former miltary personnel who have shown - like Charles - acts of courage, bravery and incredible selflessness showing them to be 'The Best of British'.

The overall winner - The Charles Holland Award - will win a trip to Italy where Amplifon was founded by Charles in Milan in 1950.

 

The Categories

We are looking for nominations in four categories:

  • The Outstanding Military Bravery award will reocgnise former military personnel who showed courage in the service of their country.
  • Against all Odds award will go to a person who has overcome adversity to take on an exceptional challenge.
  • The Community Champion award will be a person who has made a significant or inspirational contribution to their neighbourhood.
  • Hero Pet award will go to a hearing dog or other animal who has transformed the life of their owner.

In addition, our panel of judges will also choose our Charles Holland Award winner from the four categories.

The Winners will be revealed at an awards lunch at the Army and Navy Club in London on Tuesday 17th October 2017.
