Hopkins Homes proud to sponsor the Stars of Norfolk & Waveney Awards 2020

Award-winning developer, Hopkins Homes, is committed to supporting local causes and is delighted to announce that it is once again the headline sponsor for the Eastern Daily Press’ Stars of Norfolk and Waveney Awards.

Now entering their eight year, the Stars of Norfolk and Waveney Awards showcase the often unseen acts of kindness, bravery and selflessness that make communities within Norfolk and Waveney so special.

The awards, which will be held virtually this year, recognise inspirational people from communities within 13 diverse categories, including Community Hero of the Year, Outstanding Bravery Act of the Year, NHS Person of the Year and Overall Star of Norfolk and Waveney, a category sponsored by Hopkins Homes.

Lee Barnard, Group Managing Director at Hopkins Homes, said; “We are absolutely delighted to once again be the headline sponsor for the Start of Norfolk and Waveney Awards. Recognising the achievements of people in our communities, who have gone above and beyond, is important at any time but is, I think, vitally so this year.”

The East Anglian housebuilder has developments throughout Norfolk and three years ago set up the Hopkins Charitable Fund. The fund supports charities and groups throughout Norfolk, Suffolk and Cambridgeshire via charity votes, small grants and one-off donations as well as separate funding for the conservation of war memorials in the region.

Lee continued: “Hopkins Homes has never been more dedicated to enhancing and supporting the communities our homes are a part of. This year we refocused our charitable funding to support causes facing additional strain as a result of the exceptional circumstances driven by Covid-19. We have also established the Hopkins Plunkett Communities Scheme to give essential support and advice to community organisations.

“I had the pleasure of attending last year’s awards event to hear first-hand the remarkable stories from the region’s everyday heroes and look forward to learning about the inspirational individuals who have been nominated this year. We are extremely proud to sponsor these awards and celebrate public-spirited achievement.”

Eastern Daily Press Editor, David Powles, said; “After the events of 2020, it’s more important than ever that we recognise the great community work, dedication, courage and bravery people have shown in Norfolk and Waveney and I know the judges and I will have so many nominations to choose from.

“I would like to thank Hopkins Homes for the company’s continued support towards the Stars of Norfolk and Waveney Awards. We are very grateful to have them involved once again as our lead sponsor.”
