Highways Heroes | Over 40 Nominations in just a week
Over 40 submissions inside a week.
In the week since nominations opened for this year's Highways Heroes awards, the organisers have confirmed that there have been an unprecedented 40 nominations.
Last year the total number of submissions was 102, so inside a week we are already almost 40% of last year's grand total.
The Highways Heroes Awards come after a time of unprecedented change not only in our industry, but as part of our everyday lives and be recognised at a special one-off ceremony at the Grosvenor House Hotel on 7th December.
We believe this is the ideal time to celebrate the hard work and success of our workers, who have coped admirably in the face of adversity, to recognise the heroic actions of them which, until now, has gone unnoticed.
Speaking the awards, co-founder Freya Wells said, .
“Everyday across the Highways Sector we hear or read a story where one of our teams have done something that simply takes your breath away. Whenever I have had the pleasure of speaking to some of those involved its always the same conversation, “…you would have done the same”, “…it’s just part of the job”, “….I was just trying to help out” or the ever popular “…I was just in the right place at the right time.
“From acts of bravery to acts of kindness and everything in between our teams are amazing and especially after the last year we have all experienced I thinks it is great that we take this opportunity to stop – take a breath – and celebrate just some of these stories, recognise their impact and the extraordinary actions and commitments shown from the Highways Heroes who go to work every day across our Sector.”
"The Highways Heroes awards are unique as the only ceremony which recognises this and to see so many nominations so quickly clearly shows how much we value our people."
