Live Here Love Here Awards Celebrated Local Community Heroes
On 21st February 2018, Keep Northern Ireland Beautiful hosted the second Live Here Love Here Community Awards, an evening of celebration in Belfast Harbour Commissioner’s Office, sponsored by ISL Waste Management Ltd. The event, compered by Lesser Spotted Ulster star Joe Mahon, was filled with inspirational tales from volunteers who have and continue to instil pride in our local communities through practical environmental action.
The fourteen award winners, aged 5 to 77, showed that caring for your local environment and working to make a change is a passion that spans all generations. From regular litter picks to the creation of shared community spaces these unsung heroes dedicate their time and efforts into making where we live cleaner, greener, safer and more sustainable.
The awards celebrated work such as litter picks, community involvement and going above and beyond all expectations. The bespoke award pieces, handmade out of recycled materials, were created using unplugged methods by David Keys Sustainable Woodcraft.
