It’s time again for us to invite nominations for our annual Hunts Forum Volunteer Awards.
If nothing else, the last few years have taught us that volunteering is our communities’ lifeblood, many organisations have relied even more on those individuals who allow things just to happen! We are extremely proud of the volunteers in our area and that is why we are so pleased to be able to celebrate them with an in-person event at Hinchingbrooke Country Park on 14th July 2022 and we are delighted to announce the Lord Lieutenant, Julie Spence, will be joining us to hand out the awards.
Our Volunteer Awards are an opportunity to shine a light on those people in our communities who deserve special praise for their contributions. It might be someone who kick-started a new project, an unsung hero who rarely receives thanks, someone who has provided years of service or who has gone the extra mile in recent months. Please share their stories with your fellow Hunts Forum members and us by nominating them for a Volunteer Award.
We have 3 awards this year, including a special platinum award for long service to volunteering to mark the Queen’s jubilee:
The Volunteer Award is our chance to celebrate any and all types of volunteering so nominations are open to any volunteer within a Hunts Forum member-organisation.
The Rural Volunteer Award celebrates the contribution of volunteers in rural areas of our county, this is any area which falls outside of one of the major towns, and is open to all community organisations across Cambridgeshire, regardless of membership status.
The Platinum Award new for 2022 to mark the Queen’s platinum jubilee, we wanted a long service award to recognise someone‘s continual service to an organisation. This award is open to any Hunts Forum member-organisation for a volunteer who has volunteered for 5 plus years.
To enter a nomination please download and complete the relevant form from the links above, and return it to email@example.com by Wednesday 8th June 2022. Anyone who volunteers for a Hunts Forum member organisation is eligible for this award, and you can nominate more than one volunteer from an organisation.
The awards winners will be announced at the Hunts Forum Volunteer Awards on Thursday 14th July 2022 at Hinchingbrooke Country Park, 5:30-7pm, and those shortlisted will receive an invite to attend the event. We are excited to be back in-person and being able to celebrate the incredible work volunteers do in our area properly so get your nominations in.
