Liftshare.com recognised at Prime Minister's awards ceremonylift
share.com has received the ‘David and Goliath Award’ at the first ever UK Catalyst Awards, at a ceremony attended by Gordon Brown in central London this morning.
The new Awards were announced exactly a year ago by the Prime Minister, when he launched the Council on Social Action. They celebrate people who help their community using social technology, such as blogs and social network sites.
Speaking at the event, the Prime Minister said: "Our thriving third sector continues to find innovative ways to tackle issues. We are creating a new generation of activists, campaigners and social entrepreneurs who are showing us just how the newest of technologies can help solve some of the oldest of challenges, building a more just society and better, stronger communities."
The David and Goliath category recognises "something little that made a difference to something big and powerful", and was presented to lift
share’s founder Ali Clabburn at the ceremony by John Hutton MP, the Minister for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform (pictured).
share has always seen itself as a catalyst to making real improvements in society by encouraging people to do things together," says Ali. "We are absolutely delighted to have won this award; it will help us bring attention to the problems associated with individualistic lifestyles and to the social, financial and environmental benefits of doing things together."
