Scotytish Grocer Awards 2017



Community Champion Award

Mars Chocolate UK has a long history of positive support of communities.
With Scottish Grocer it’s looking for Scotland’s Community Champion – a retail business that engages, empowers and supports their community, making an especially strong, effective contribution to its local area.

The key to success in this category comes from recognition that your store has made a significant mutually beneficial contribution to its local community

Judges will be looking for evidence of any of the following criteria:

• Local support: Sponsorship/support of local activities and groups – especially in areas like well-being, social cohesion, and culture.

• Community projects: Participation in local community environmental projects.

• Industry initiatives: Involvement in wider industry programmes (for example My Shop is Your Shop, Fairtrade Fortnight) in ways that bring your local community into the initiative.

• Advice: Contributions of time, expertise and advice to community projects and activities.
