Severn Trent launches competition to find community champions

WITH less than 40 days to go until the Commonwealth Games, Severn Trent is launching two competitions for residents to be in with a chance of winning tickets to the games.

They are calling on customers to nominate a ‘community champion’ who has gone the extra mile in supporting those around them, with the winners gifted tickets.

Pupils are also being asked to showcase their passion for sustainability in a school competition, where pupils are challenged find something recyclable in their home or school and upcycle it into something they might find in a forest.

Richard Eadie, head of sustainability at Severn Trent, said: “We’d love people to nominate those who make a real difference in their communities, and pupils who share our passion for sustainability, to win tickets to this once in a lifetime event.

“As Birmingham 2022’s Official Nature & Carbon Neutral Partner, we love spreading the word about the value of our water and how important hydration is to health, which is why we are also operating water refill stations at every Games venue this summer.”

Severn Trent customers can enter their ‘community champion’ nomination here, with the competition closing on 3 July 2022, with 150 pairs of tickets available.

Schools will be asked to keep all entries for collection so that Severn Trent can display them at the Commonwealth Games.

The competition closes on 11 July 2022, and 50 pairs of tickets will be available.  For details on how to enter, please email education@severntrent.co.uk.

Across both competitions, tickets for the opening and closing ceremonies are available to be won, as well as tickets for swimming, boxing, table tennis and athletics events to name but a few.

The Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games will be held from 28 July until 8 August 2022.
