The 'Voscurs', Bristol's social impact awards, dazzled again in 2017! Held at a high profile event on 30 November at We the Curious, the awards saw six exceptional groups/individuals announced as this year’s winners and presented with their awards.
With voting fiercer than ever before and thousands of votes cast, the event once again proves just how valued the work of our sector is, and how critical it is to the happy, healthy lives of people and communities in our city.
The awards were presented by Voscur Interim CEO, Sandra Meadows, and the chair of Bristol City Youth Council, Hannah Gardner, and Bristol Acapella joined us to sing some rousing songs in between.
