After a month of voting, it has now been confirmed that HAPPI and Darren Horsnell are winners of the regional award for Britain Has Spirit!
HAPPI have been awarded up to £1,000 pounds worth of food and party goods towards a fantastic street party to celebrate with our community.
Darren Horsnell from Veterans In Communities won in the individuals category and wins an experience day. He works tirelessly at VIC giving his spare time to run Arts and Crafts Sessions and as a Volunteer Outreach Worker.
Our two Rossendale Finalists will next have the opportunity to be voted for the National Award in September so we encourage the community to vote once more for them then, where they will have a chance to win £25,000.00 towards a project, local initiative or charity of their choice.
Selina McConnell from HAPPI was delighted with the news and couldn’t wait to start planning the party;
“We’re delighted with this success. If you’d like to get involved in helping plan the community party then contact us or join our ‘HAPPI Volunteers’ Facebook page.
