Nuneaton and Bedworth will mark Volunteers Week with a prestigious awards ceremony on Tuesday 13th June 2017, to celebrate the work of its community volunteers.
Warwickshire County Council, Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough Council and Warwickshire Community and Voluntary Action (WCAVA) are joining forces to stage this special event and are encouraging the public to nominate community volunteers for an award. Therefore if you know of a volunteer or team of volunteers who are doing great work for the community – they would like you to get in touch.
Awards will be offered for volunteering in support of a range of themes; including health and wellbeing, creative and the arts, sport, sustaining the environment, young volunteers and long service as a volunteer. The awards will recognise individuals and teams of volunteers.
Anyone who wishes to nominate a volunteer or team of volunteers simply needs to complete a brief form which can be easily done online, saying why they have nominated the volunteer or group. Forms can be found on the websites of Warwickshire County Council, Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough Council and Warwickshire CAVA. It is a very easy process but if anyone requires more information please contact Warwickshire Community and Voluntary Action by email at firstname.lastname@example.org who will be pleased to help. A volunteer supervisor can nominate their own volunteer team too.
All nominees for awards together with those who have nominated them and their chosen guests, will be invited to the awards ceremony. This will be held at Bedworth Life Church from 5.45pm - to 8.30pm on Tuesday 13th June 2017, where presentations will be made by civic leaders to the award winners.
Kate Morrison, Director of Operations for Warwickshire Community and Voluntary Action said,
“Volunteers make an enormous contribution to the safety, wellbeing and quality of life of our citizens. Every single bit of volunteering work is valuable in its own right and makes a positive difference. This event is one way for us all to recognise the hard work and dedication that volunteers in the Borough provide. It is a great opportunity for the public to get involved in recognising our community volunteers. I sincerely hope that people will respond by telling us about their fantastic volunteers!"
The closure date for submissions is Monday, 22nd May 2017 at 9.00am.
