Hundreds already Cheering Volunteering - don't miss out on your chance to join them
Date Added: 13/05/2015
There are only three weeks to go until the Central Bedfordshire Cheering Volunteering celebration event – and free tickets are going quickly.
The event is being held at The Grove Theatre, in Dunstable, on Tuesday 2 June and plenty of people are already booked in to celebrate the inspirational volunteers who make a huge difference to their communities and to the lives of individual people.
There’s still time to claim your place at the event, which as well as seeing awards presented in six categories, includes a buffet, a chance to find out more about voluntary organisations across Central Bedfordshire and entertainment from internationally renowned Tom Jones tribute act Billy Lee.
The awards were devised by Central Bedfordshire Council, working in partnership with the Volunteer Centres as part of Central Bedfordshire Together, to say thank you to those who give their time to help others.
They fall on the second day of national Volunteers’ Week and recognise the voluntary contribution that individuals, groups and organisations make in Central Bedfordshire and are divided into six categories:
• Young Volunteer of the Year
• Volunteer of the Year
• Lifetime Achievement
• Unsung Hero of the Year
• Fundraiser of the Year
• Outstanding Contribution to Volunteering
Entries closed last month and following a superb response the judging panel is now drawing up a shortlist of three in each category.
