Our Founder has been named as a finalist in top regional awards.

Congratulations to Dan Frank, WF3 Kindness Founder, who has been named a Finalist in the Yorkshire Big Thank You Awards 2020 following a campaign in the Yorkshire Evening Post and other JPI Media outlets

The inaugural Big Thank You Awards awards, run by JPI Media and sponsored by Sovereign Healthcare give the public the opportunity to say a big thank you to those that have helped others during the COVID-19 pandemic. Dan was nominated by a local resident who has received support from WF3 Kindness since March and who said 'They basically do anything they can to support us'. 


Dan was informed last week that he had been shortlisted and had made the final 20 out of hundreds of nominations and said: "To be thought of and nominated by someone in the area was an honour and great surprise but to find out I'm a finalist is a complete shock, I'm humbled but a little embarrassed as there are many great people that have helped us achieve what we have. 

"It would not have been possible to support the number of people we have without the help of lots of people, which is why this award isn't just about me - it's for Tingley, Ardsley and Thorpe. Thanks to everyone for their help which has enabled us to make a real difference to people in our community"

Dan's nomination was the drive behind our very own Best of WF3 Awards, he is the first to say that he's not doing 100 shopping trips on his own every week, nor is he buying all the food for the food parcels but he is coordinating everything and would help anyone in need, and if he can't then he will find someone that can. Dan is also working hard to celebrate the Best of WF3 and honour the people in our community who are heroes, so let's support him and wave the flag for Tingley, Ardsley and Thorpe on a regional stage.

The final will be held on Friday 11th December, everyone can tune in watch the virtual awards, hosted by Harry Gration and supported by a number of celebrities including Angela Griffin, Andrew Barton, Kate Hardcastle and Keeley Donovan.
