Mid Sussex Applauds winners

Amazing individuals, groups and businesses from across the district were celebrated in our Mid Sussex Applauds Awards 2020.

Mid Sussex Applauds seeks to recognise those who go above and beyond in their efforts for our community. With the current coronavirus guidelines, we were unable to gather people together for an awards ceremony so we decided to celebrate their achievements with a series of short films.

The awards were split into eight categories and the winners were as follows:

Stronger Together Award winner, Sarah Collyer, East Grinstead Action Group

Take Pride in Mid Sussex Award winner, Joanne Clayton, Terracycle

Young Achiever Award joint winners, – Zac Lammas and Kieran Thompson

Stronger Communities Award joint winners – Haywards Heath Covid-19 Mutual Aid Group, Horsted Helpers and Hurstpierpoint Covid-19 Neighbours Support Group.
