Angostura Holdings Limited has announced an award to recognise people who are making a positive impact through community service.

“This is an initiative to recognise individuals who are making a positive impact through community service,” she said. “It will be an annual Award and will showcase the extraordinary contributions being made by responsible citizens across Trinidad and Tobago.”

The Angostura Champions initiative will honour individuals dedicated to serving their communities through social and economic projects or programmes that are focused on improving the standard of living and the happiness factor in their communities.

A release from Angostura said everyone knows someone who leads by example in the community, someone who helps, gives advice, encourages, makes life a little easier for others, someone who is always willing to listen.
