We received over 600 entries in the first ever Happy Living awards and were blown away by the amazing people living with Anchor. And we’re happy to announce the competition is back for a second time with some new categories. So, if you know someone who deserves to be recognised for making a difference make sure you let us know.
This year's categories
Extraordinary Talent Award – New for 2015
This category is an opportunity to showcase all of the talents that your neighbours, friends and community have. Nominating someone will give them the recognition they deserve for their unusual or extraordinary talent, whether they can play the spoons, do magic tricks or jive like a professional… We know people living with Anchor have talent, now it’s time to tell us about it.
Is there someone at your location who is the heart of your local community? A customer who has helped to bring the local community in or made a difference in the area where you live?
They say everyone needs good neighbours. Do you know someone who makes a difference and goes the extra mile? We want to hear about someone who has given up their time to help their neighbours.
Best Pet – New for 2015
We know that pets provide companionship, comfort and love, and offer a way of making contact with others. Do you have a furry or feathered friend who makes a difference to your life? Is your pet deserving of recognition for helping you with everyday tasks? Tell us all about your animal companions and why they deserve to be named Best Pet.
Grandparent(s) of the Year
Many of us have fond memories of our grandparents. Do you know a customer who is a grandparent or a great-grandparent and goes above and beyond for their family?
This award is for a gardening genius who has brightened up your location with their green fingers. Do you know someone who has worked their magic on your communal garden? It might be flowers in tubs, a vegetable patch or something bigger.
Nominations are now closed for 2015.
Award winners will receive £100 of gift vouchers. The closing date is 1 November. The Happy Living Awards are open to Anchor customers only. Winners and those shortlisted will feature in their local newspaper, on the Anchor website and on social media (e.g. Facebook etc.)
