Celebrating our Hull City of Culture partnership by recognising our community heroes

We’re proud to have been named as the latest major partner of Hull UK City of Culture 2017 and we’re celebrating the announcement with an opportunity to recognise the city’s community heroes.

In partnership with Hull 2017, we’ve launched a campaign to commend Hull’s finest, those who go above and beyond to help friends, colleagues and their communities.

We’re inviting people to nominate their chosen hero in a bid to win them recognition and an opportunity to win ticket’s to the Rod Stewart concert at the KC stadium this June.

Nominations made via will be considered by a panel of Hull 2017 and MKM representatives and 10 winners will receive tickets.

As we’re celebrating our 21st anniversary in 2016, MKM put the concert together as a way of thanking the people of Hull for their support and custom. Proceeds will go to Hull charities The Daisy Appeal and Holy Trinity Church. The 25,000-ticket event is all but sold out, so these really are golden tickets for Hull’s brightest stars.

David Kilburn, our Co-Founder and Executive Chairman said: “The people here are a huge part of what makes Hull a great place and this campaign will encourage their much-deserved recognition. The concert is a coup for Hull. Sharing it with some of the unsung heroes in our community in celebration of their generosity of spirit seems a fitting way to celebrate both our anniversary and the exciting plans that lay ahead for Hull 2017.

“Hull is where we were born and bred, our brand owes its success to the roots we put down here, so we are thrilled to work alongside Hull 2017 to be a part in creating a lasting legacy for this great city.”

Martin Green, Chief Executive Officer and Director of Hull 2017, said: “It is a pleasure to welcome MKM on board. I look forward to working with the team as a major partner of Hull UK City of Culture 2017, as MKM is a great example of a successful business that is rooted in Hull, with branches across the country. This partnership is sign of great confidence, not only in the people and city of Hull, but also in the enduring legacy of Hull UK City of Culture 2017.”

Nominations for Community Heroes open on April 29th and close on May 20th (midnight).
