YorkMix HeroAwards 2024

Another year, another Hero Awards!

We are thrilled to share our experience as the main sponsor of the YorkMix Hero Awards 2024, an event that celebrates the extraordinary contributions of individuals within our community. Held at the prestigious York Racecourse on June 7th, the ceremony honored those who make life better in Yorkshire through acts of bravery, kindness, and selflessness.

The event contained entertainment from start to finish with an amazing fire act to weclome guests, sponsors and nominees.

As well as inviting all the team to attend the event, this year we were pleased to extend the invitation to the Made In Group so we could catch up on the groups plans for Backing Britain, and special guests Ian and Angela. Ian Brown is the former President of the Made In Yorkshire council and has extensive knowledge of the manufacturing sector from his time at Teconnex.

Ben Fry was in attendance as York City’s Town Crier.

As Yorkshire Profiles, we believe in the power of community and the importance of recognizing those who go above and beyond. Sponsoring the YorkMix Hero Awards aligns with our values of community support and recognition of unsung heroes. This year’s awards featured inspiring stories, including neighbors who saved a life, individuals who faced adversity with resilience, and community leaders who have made significant impacts.

Kerri Watt perfomed an amazing set for the guests between the meal and main ceremony.

Events like these are crucial as they shine a light on the often-overlooked heroes among us, fostering a sense of unity and encouragement. They remind us of the positive impact we can all have in our communities, inspiring others to contribute in meaningful ways.

The guests were able to vote for their favorite hero and this year, I had the pleasure of meeting Olivia Patterson who walked away with the “Ultimate Hero” award. 6-year-old Olivia was able to keep her Mother and 2 siblings protected by raising an alarm for a house fire in time for a safe evacuation.

The Hero Awards are one of our favorite events and we extend our heartfelt congratulations to all the winners and nominees. Your stories of courage and generosity are truly inspiring, and we are honored to have played a part in celebrating your achievements. Let’s continue to support and uplift each other, making our community stronger and more compassionate.
