Nominate Volunteer Heroes For Award
Do you know an unsung community hero, group or business which deserves recognition for their voluntary work?
Nominations are now open for the annual Mansfield Volunteer Awards and people have until Friday 28 April to put a group, individual or business forward.
The awards are supported by Mansfield District Council, Mansfield Community & Voluntary Service and Nottinghamshire County Council and there are seven categories:
Young Person’s Award (a young person under 25 volunteering in the community)
Vaughan Thomas Memorial Award (for any community group involved in community action)
Emily Dawes Memorial Award (for a paid worker in the voluntary sector who has gone beyond the call of duty)
Andrew Wallace Memorial Award (for an individual volunteering in the community)
Margaret Wilson Memorial Award (for any volunteer who provided exceptional support to a charity)
Outstanding Volunteer of the Year Award (exceptional or sustained actions)
Business in the Community Award (a business who has given voluntary time to support the voluntary sector)
The winners will be announced at an award ceremony on Thursday 8 June at the John Fretwell Sporting Complex in Warsop.
Executive Mayor of Mansfield Kate Allsop said: "Volunteers do an enormous amount of important work in improving the quality of life for residents and play a vital role making communities cohesive, so this is an excellent way to show how much we appreciate them."
