About Opus Energy Gift

Opus Energy Gift - win part of £10k!

What's it all about?

To celebrate Opus Energy's tenth anniversary, we donated £10,000 to ten non-profit community groups. Lots of thanks to everyone who submitted videos and voted! Keep following this site to find out how the winning groups spent their money!

Opus Energy is an energy supplier to UK businesses, established in 2002. We turned ten in 2012, and our workforce has grown to over 500 members of staff in two locations, in Northampton and Oxford. Opus Energy supplies both gas and electricity to small and medium sized businesses and electricity to larger corporate businesses. We also have a growing renewables division which buys electricity from independent generators and sells it to our customers.

We are passionate about helping these communities, and would like to play a more active role in supporting them. With this in mind, we launched the £10,000 Opus Energy Gift. We hope that they money will be useful to several Northamptonshire and Oxfordshire not-for-profit community groups.

The £10,000 Gift was sliced into:

  • One gift of £3,000
  • Two gifts of £2,000
  • Three gifts of £600
  • Four gifts of £300

How it worked

To apply for a slice of the £10,000, all local community groups needed to do was make a short video explaining how much of the Opus Energy Gift prize they would like to receive and what project it would help towards.

They had until 27th August 2012 to submit their entries.

Throughout the competition, and until 10th of September 2012, the public voted for the videos.

The favourites were put before a judging panel for the final decision.
