The ‘Helping Hands Award’, a registered Charity run by volunteers, seeks to support young people become better citizens and help them make their local community ‘Healthier Safer and Happier’ places. This is achieved by the children identifying local community issues and working as a team with various agencies and local groups to solve those issues.

We are endorsed by many organisations including local authorities, Police and Fire & Rescue Services.The latter two organisations contribute actively by visiting schools and supporting in the development of these projects. An annual financial award is made to the best 3 school projects at a prestigious presentation; this is possible through fund raising and generous donations from the Nottinghamshire Masons.

To date we have helped over 5000 primary school children across Nottinghamshire learn about their community through an amazing range of innovative and creative projects. Their success in making their communities ‘Healthier Happier and Safer’ places, learning about their communities and embracing diverse cultures will surely stay with them for many years to come and stand them in good stead for adulthood in our increasingly complex society.

However, the time has come for HHA to stand down. For various logistical reasons we have regrettably decided 2014 will be the final year of this Award. The HHA Committee would like to thank all those schools, parents and children who participated over the years as well as the Judges, Police and Fire & Rescue Personnel and many others who gave of their time for this laudable cause. We hope that you enjoyed working with the children and seeing their undoubted successes.

Finally we call out to other local community groups working with young people (ideally aged 6-11years) with similar objectives and values as HHA. On winding up, our constitution requires any outstanding funds to be applied for similar objectives and we have determined to invite bids from similar groups based anywhere in Nottinghamshire.

If you wish to nominate your community group or charity please send a short explanation of what you do and what you would use any donation for by email to Toni Smith HHA Trustee at by 28 February 2015. The outgoing Committee will then determine allocation of said funds to one or more worthy applicants; (this notice does not constitute a guarantee of any award which will be determined purely on merit based on the HHA Committee’s review).
