OFFICIAL STATEMENT FROM BIG IMPACT released Sunday 29 July 2018
Big Impact are disappointed that the Icon Board have decided to resign at this late stage in the judging process for the Icon Awards.
It is with great sadness that we write to confirm that the Big Impact board of trustees have decided to cancel the Icon awards. We hope that the amazing work that the finalists, community groups, charities and individuals do will be recognised in the near future. There is too little time to replace a credible board who would be responsible for reading submissions, doing the research and ultimately picking the award winners.
The charity will now get in touch with all finalists and sponsors to confirm the decision and to organise full refunds to everyone who has booked and paid for tickets. Anyone wishing to get in touch to arrange refunds can do so by emailing email@example.com
