Sherborne Business Awards is the foremost platform recognising and rewarding business success in our community. It’s mission is to highlight and reward those entrepreneurial businesses that have made great contributions to the local economy, business innovation and community spirit. This year, for the first time, they awarded a COMMUNITY SUPPORT award and we’re delighted that Sherborne Food Bank was the recipient!

Trustee Charles Sweet collected the award on behalf of all our volunteers at a presentation that took place at The Eastbury Hotel on 11th January 2024.

A judge commented:

One of the best entries I have ever seen from a dedicated team of volunteers who are not afraid to blow their own trumpet through social media, thereby enabling their vital service to reach more needy people.

One of the nominations said:

I really wanted to thank the people at this service for helping me when I never in a million years thought I would need such help. Losing my job and struggling has made me so grateful for having somewhere to turn when you are at your lowest point.
