News from: Reading Voluntary Action
Reading Voluntary Action is delighted to announce that we are now accepting nominations for the fourth annual Reading Volunteer Awards. The awards evening celebrates those in our community who volunteer their time, talents and skills for the benefit of our town.
This year’s event will take place on Tuesday 2 June 2020, 17:00–21:00 and will be hosted by the Museum of English Rural Life.
Nominations can be made by those working or volunteering in local not-for-profit organisations, those who have benefited directly from the work of a volunteer, or members of the general public.
There are a number of Awards categories, these are illustrative and are designed to give you an idea of the reasons you might nominate one of your volunteers, so don’t worry if it seems your volunteer doesn’t fit into one of these please nominate them anyway.
-Community Ambassador: Acknowledging the efforts of those who act as representatives of their communities, helping to connect with others and adding to Reading’s vibrant cultural mix.
-Can-do: Recognising those volunteers who frequently go above and beyond the expected and demonstrate the kind of can-do attitude that gets things done.
-Can’t Do Without: Celebrating those fulfilling those vital roles that hold a group together and help them make a difference – often hidden and behind the scenes.
-Student Volunteers: Acknowledging the positive contribution to the local community made by those who come to Reading, from across the UK and beyond, to study.
-Sports Champion: Celebrating the volunteers who play a key, and often unrecognised, role in helping those from across our community to get involved with a sport.-
-Long-Standing: Recognising the consistent and significant contributions made by volunteers over an extended period of time.
-Life in Reading: Recognising those who work to make Reading the unique, vibrant and welcoming place we all know it can be.
You can nominate by simply completing this form (this will open a new tab). The deadline for the nominations is 30 March 2020. All those nominated will be invited to attend the evening and all will be recognised for the contributions they make.
