Bracknell-based communications technology provider the Redwood Technologies Group has renewed its support for the annual Pride of Bracknell Forest Awards, supporting two categories.
Content Guru, which forms the cloud services arm of the Group, will once again sponsor the ‘Health and Sport – Young Person’s Award’, whilst founding member Redwood Technologies will sponsor the newly renamed ‘John Nike Pride of Bracknell Forest Children’s Award’ in honour of the late Bracknell hero, John Nike.
The Pride of Bracknell Forest Awards will once again bring together people and organisations from across the area, including charities, children, teachers and businesses, in recognition of the borough’s highest achievers and unsung heroes.
Now in their 12th year, the highly-anticipated Awards are set to take place on Friday 21st April at Bracknell & Wokingham College, where attendees will be welcomed for a glittering black-tie evening of dining and entertainment to suit all generations. Former Welsh international footballer and BBC Radio Berkshire presenter, Ady Williams, and co-presenter Andrew Peach will be the evening’s hosts.
This year, ten Awards are up for grabs, including ‘School of the Year’, ‘Business of the Year’ and ‘Charity of the Year’, with sponsors confirmed as Redwood Technologies, Waitrose, Panasonic, Honda, Boehringer, Shorts Group, Content Guru, Appledore, SAR Transport Laithwaites, and Bracknell and Wokingham College.
Sean Taylor, CEO of the Redwood Technologies Group, commented:
“We are delighted to once again be involved in the organisation and sponsorship of such a fantastic local cause that recognises the outstanding contributions and efforts of so many talented and deserving people in the Bracknell area. Last year’s event was such a great success, and this year we are hoping to build on this and to get as many people involved as possible.”
“We are especially excited to be supporting the coveted ‘John Nike Pride of Bracknell Children’s Award’ and ‘Health and Sport - Young Person’s Award’, and are looking forward to seeing all the nominations come in and learning of the great contributions that young people are making to the area.”
