The Association of Convenience Stores (ACS) is inviting retailers to enter its annual Community Heroes Award competition, which recognises store owners and staff who have made a real and tangible difference to their community.

All entrants will receive a Gillette Fusion rugby team training pack from the awards supporter P&G, which includes sports kit and equipment.

ACS chief executive James Lowman said: “We are keen to hear from retailers of all sizes who go the extra mile and create sustainable relationships that set them apart as community leaders.”

The deadline for entries is Thursday, March 12. Entry forms can be downloaded from
