2013 Finalists

Shortlisting and finalising have been very tough, but the Chamberlain Awards team is very pleased to announce this year’s finalists!

The team would like to thank everybody who took the time to nominate an individual or team for this year’s awards.

The team received a record number of nominations this year – it took us over two weeks to read through them all! As always, the nominations were full of interesting and inspiring stories of excellent work from our BCC colleagues.
