Strong line-up of individuals for Sandwell Volunteer Awards
Organisers have hailed one of the strongest line-ups of individuals, nominated in the history of the Sandwell Volunteer Bi annual Awards.
The event has attracted record-breaking numbers of nominees, from large and small groups across the borough, all eager to demonstrate the passion and value of their loyal volunteers.
More than 100 entries have been received, all those nominated for an award will receive a certificate, regardless of whether they are shortlisted for an award. Further independent judging to select the ultimate winner of each category is taking place.
As the centre celebrates 40 years operating within Sandwell, this significant milestone will take place during National Volunteer’s Week 1 – 7 June.
Volunteer Centre Sandwell CEO Jean Taylor said “ Each year the standard of nominations to Sandwell Volunteer Awards gets stronger and stronger. It is a huge tribute to the quality of volunteers we have in Sandwell, giving their skills, talents and precious time. We at VCS are proud that indivduals, groups and organisations choose these awards to appreciate their outstanding volunteers.”
The centre has been contacted by West Midlands Honours Coordinator, West Midlands Lieutenancy to enhance the number of quality submissions made from Sandwell to receive an honor from the Prime Minster’s Office and Her Majesty The Queen.
The Sandwell Volunteers Awards & 40th Celebration Reception will be held on 2 June.
