Happy New Year from The Black Achievers Awards Team!

As we are still heading into the beginning of the year 2017 we are already starting the planning of this year’s Black Achievers Awards. Last year was a successful comeback after Councillor Merlita Bryan had to miss out on a year due to her role as the Lord Mayor in 2014. We are planning to out-do last year’s event so if you are a local business and would like to be involved in sponsoring the Black Achievers Awards this year, then please email us at theblackachieversaward@gmail.com.
We would like to continue to build on the relationship in the community by including the Nottingham Community as much as we can, so support us in spreading the word about this years event by following our social media platforms. Announcements of when the nominations will be open and the date of the event will be made soon. #baawardsnotts
