There is still time to apply for the 6th Atul Pathak Community Awards…the application deadline for the Awards has now been extended to Wednesday 15th May to enable even more people to apply.
Atul, Managing Director of Appt Corporation, set up the awards in 2014 to give something back to the community by recognising and celebrating the work of local charities and community groups. This year funding grants of up to £3,000 are available for winners.
The Community Awards are open to charities and groups in communities local to McDonald’s restaurants run by Appt Corporation across London and Berkshire. Successful applicants will receive their grants at the Awards’ event at the House of Commons on Wednesday 19th June. In addition to the awards, winners are offered a year-long partnership with their local McDonald’s restaurant offering them further support in running their organisation and initiatives. The overall Award amounts are £3,000, £2,000, £1,500, £750 and £500.
Commenting on the Awards, Atul said: “I’m delighted to extend the deadline for applications for the sixth Community Awards, thus far we’ve had some fantastic applications and I’ve been blown away by the quality. Personally, I’m proud that the awards offer an opportunity for us all to celebrate the work of local charities and community groups who are unsung heroes far too often.
“Appt Corporation has social responsibility at its very core. We believe it is our duty to give something back to the communities we are a part of. I cannot wait to see further great applications coming through, adding to the ones we already have. But I also know it’ll continue to be a tough job choosing winners because my experience of judging the Awards is that the quality is just so high! I wish every applicant the very best of luck.”
