Welcome to the Audacious Creative Birthday Challenge.

Please watch the video below to find out more.

Thank you for taking the time to watch the video. Hopefully you feel inspired enough to think about the charity that you want to nominate.

To recap: to celebrate our fourth anniversary, we want to give away a design service that would make a big difference to a charity so that it can carry on making a difference to the lives of others. So I would like YOU to nominate a charity that you are passionate about in the comment panel below. If you already work for a charity, you can nominate yourselves but please specify a particular project that we might be able to work with you on.

In your nomination, express why you feel this charity/project should receive this service and explain what difference this might make. When all the nominations are in, an independent panel of people will select three of the nominations to go out to a public vote.

The charity with the most votes ‘wins’. It’s as simple as that.

1. All nominations will be pre-approved before appearing on this page.
2. The closing date for nominations is 17:00 on Friday 10th October 2014.

    Hi Stu, what a great idea! My two favourite charities are Cancer Research UK and Helen and Douglas House Hospice who provide specialist hospice care for children and young people. Having worked with families of terminally ill babies in the past, I know how vital the work this hospice does is. Kim.

      Thanks for your nomination Kim. It’s really appreciated. Hospices up and down our region do incredible work in very challenging situations and with people facing heartache and tragedy. This is especially true of hospices that support children, young people and their families.

    Great idea! We nominate the Villager Community Bus Service which provides daily transport for people in rural areas where there is no bus or transport service. They can be isolated as a result so this voluntary bus service which covers 15 routes to nearly 70 villages in is a real life-line to folk in being able to get out & about to shops, friends, appointments etc. Jamie & Shonagh

      Thank you Jamie and Shonagh. This vital service is so important – especially in communities that are becoming increasingly disconnected and fragmented.

    I nominate Bromsgrove based The Basement Project, a local company offering a drop in centre and outreach support to young people facing homelessness in the North Worcestershire community.

      Thanks for the nomination Lyndon. Being an ex-youth worker I understand and appreciate the value projects such as this bring to the individuals they are trying to support and to the wider community as a whole.

    Hi Stu – great initiative Stu.
    Through my motor racing I recently came across Mission Motorsport through a chap called Dave Birrell – their aim To aid in the recovery and rehabilitation of those affected by military operations by providing opportunities through Motorsport.
    No idea what you could do to help them! Have a look at Dave Birrell’s video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nmDXykWhiVk

      Thanks for your nomination Kevin – much appreciated. This looks like a really innovative and original way of helping support those affected.

    Hi Stu – great idea. I nominate New Hope in Worcester. They do a really great job with the children and provide much needed support for their parents

      Aidan – thank you for your nomination. It’s appreciated. From what I’ve read on their website (http://www.newhopeworcester.co.uk/) they look like they offer an invaluable service and support network to children with disabilities, as well as providing support for parents and carers.

    Stu

    This is a brilliant idea, totally you, making a difference to someone who needs it. I would like to nominate The Basement Project in Bromsgrove. They support the young homeless people in the area. Young people who are vulnerable need the help that the basement project gives and they in turn need help with the work they do.

      Thank you for your nomination Vicky – really appreciated. I’ve not heard of the Basement Project before and yet, here they are, getting two nominations!
