This year’s REACH Awards event is taking place at the Forum in Norwich, against the backdrop of NCH&C’s weeklong public exhibition, Looking after you locally: A celebration of community health & care in Norfolk.

As well as enjoying the awards ceremony, finalists and guests will be treated to a private view of the exhibition, with a drinks and canape reception.

Our host for the evening is Tim FitzHigham, a comedian, author, actor, and holder of multiple world records. Among numerous TV credits as a comedian, he has starred as the villain in Paddington 2, and as himself in the Clint Eastwood movie, Hereafter. In 2022, Tim was appointed as the Creative Director of St George’s Guildhall in King’s Lynn: Britain’s oldest working theatre.

This year’s REACH Awards are generously supported by a number of sponsors – full details of these will be announced next week.

Congratulations to all our finalists and thank you to everyone who took the time to make a nomination.

The quality of nominations was extremely high this year and coming to a decision was incredibly difficult for our judging panel.
