Over 5,000 votes were cast in just 48 hours for the Yorkshire Choice Awards.
The awards aim to honour the region’s most inspirational organisations, entrepreneurs and individuals.
Having raised over £20,000 for local charities in the last two years, the duo behind the awards – Melanie Malcolm and Jo Maltby - are keen to raise more this year for their chosen charity, St Gemma’s Hospice in Leeds.
Melanie said: “We’ve had a phenomenal response to the awards so far - proof that Yorkshire really does thrive on amazing people.”
