Jim Delbridge to host the 2018 Community Awards
We are excited to announce that Island FM’s Jim Delbridge will be hosting this year’s Community Awards.
Jim is a well-known writer, musician and broadcaster and is currently News Editor and Deputy Station Director at Island FM. He was a founder of the charity GO which gives employment and training opportunities for people with communication difficulties.
Jim has kindly agreed to host this year’s Awards Ceremony, to be held at St James on the 13th November. Jim will act as MC for the event helping to keep the event on track, introduce the categories and interview winners. Jim has hosted many awards events over the years and the Community Awards will benefit from his broad experience.
Community Foundation Chief Executive Jim Roberts commented: “We are thrilled to have such a seasoned and well-respected host at this year’s Community Awards. Jim has longstanding commitments to Guernsey’s charitable sector, notably his work with the employment charity GO. His involvement will be invaluable in making the night an enjoyable and memorable event for all.
The Awards aim to recognise outstanding contributions to our community and the voluntary sector in any shape or size. We are not prescriptive. We encourage everyone to think about who they could nominate and get their nomination forms in.”
Once the nominations period closes, an independent Judges Panel will draw up a shortlist of nominees, who will be invited to November’s Community Awards, which will take place at St James on Tuesday 13th. Winners will be announced at the event, tickets for which will go on sale in October.
