Over the last seven years the awards have recognised the magnificent people who make up Luton and Bedfordshire’s vibrant, multicultural community.

In that time, a host of charities have benefited from a combined total of £100,000, including the Luton & Dunstable Hospital and Level Trust.

The money comes from donations from sponsors as well as fundraising on the night of the presentations.

Organiser Mostaque Koyes said: “This year, we’re formalising the process of applying for what is likely to be a substantial amount of money.

“It is possible that we could have a pot of around £20,000 and we want to make sure it reaches the causes that best reflect the community aims and objectives of the awards.”
