West Suffolk Business Awards 2024 honours those who play a key role in the community





Businesses can play a vital role other than just keeping the economy running.

The Bury Free Press West Suffolk Business Award for Contribution to the Community recognises a business or business person who has also made a positive contribution to the community.

It is for those who make an extra effort to bring the community together or those who go out of their way to help others or perhaps a charity.
