Yesterday’s Evening Post

Yesterday Bristol’s Evening Post, the city’s newspaper of record (really? Ed.), carried the news of Bristol Wireless’ shortlisting for the Santander Social Enterprise Awards (which were being organised locally in conjunction with the Quartet Community Foundation).

We’d originally applied for the award after a report on them was spotted by a keen-eyed Bristol Wireless volunteer on Bristol 24-7, an independent online news site for the city.

Anyway, back to the Post article, which starts:

Seven social enterprises and community organisations in Bristol could win a financial boost to the tune of up to £50,000 after being shortlisted for the Santander Social Enterprise Development Awards.

It then goes on to mention our good selves…

Also shortlisted are Aspire property maintenance services, Bristol Wireless Community Co-operative, FRANK Water, A Clean Sweep and Nature Works Training in South Gloucestershire – provides services for people with learning difficulties and mental health needs.

Read the Evening Post article in full.

As a postscript, your ‘umble scribe would add that the same day that the Post published that article, we received news that our bid had ultimately been unsuccessful. 🙁 However, the effort of applying in the first place was definitely worthwhile. 🙂

    Well done on the publicity, but as a former Santander customer, this ethicswashing annoys me. They would be more help if they gave social enterprises free banking like the co-operative bank does. Move Your Money!
