The Best of WF3 Awards

The deadline for nominees for our Best of WF3 Awards 2024 has now passed, as usual we received a huge number of nominations - we are still doing the maths but it looks like this could be the most we have ever received! Thank you to everyone that has nominated an individual, group, team or business. Without you getting involved we wouldn't be doing these Awards so thank you!


Every single nominee is clearly highly valued in the community and their efforts do not go unnoticed, we’re sure you’ll agree that they should all be proud of what they have done and continue to do and be happy that someone has taken the time out of their day to nominate them for one of our Awards!

The Kate Allen People's Champion Award

We recently shared some sad news on our socials about our friend and supporter of WF3 Kindness, Kate Allen, who lived in East Ardsley. Kate was diagnosed with Breast Cancer in 2021 and featured in our Best of WF3 Awards last year when her friends, 'Kate's Mates', won the first ever Kevin Sinfield Award of Friendship.

In tribute and honour to Kate we have launched The Kate Allen - People's Champion Award which will include every single nominee from this year and is the only award which is decided entirely by members of the public.

'We're proud and honoured to have this award in Kate's name. Kate had a wonderful time at the awards last year and to think that each year she is going to be part of this event and the community which meant so much to her is something that we will treasure.' -Craig Dunwell, Kate's partner

The Kate Allen-People's Champion Award has been kindly sponsored by family friend, Dan McTernan from MacTeas.

You can vote for your people's champion on our website: or click the button below. VOTES CLOSE AT MIDDAY ON FRIDAY 1 MARCH.


As with all the events and programs that we run, our Best of WF3 Awards are only possible because of the support and generosity of local people and the business community.

If you can help us recognise and celebrate those people that live, work or go to school in Tingley, Ardsley, Thorpe or the surrounding area please let us know. We have options available from £35 up to £200, alternatively if you can help us in non-financial ways we'd love to hear from you!
