Volunteer Awards 2016

This year’s Awards will take place on Thursday 9th June at Trimpell Sports and Social Club, Out Moss Lane, Morecambe.  If you would like to book tickets you can do so HERE.

This year’s Award categories are:

In addition to the above, certificates of recognition will be awarded to both GROUPS and INDIVIDUALS by request.  You can request these certificates by completing the Certificate Request Form.  See the guide below for more info.

Enquiries can be emailed to awards@lancastercvs.org.uk.

NOMINATIONS ARE CLOSED.  However, you can still request certificates of recognition for groups or individuals.

Requesting a Certificate of Recognition for a Group of Volunteers

If your organisation involves a large number of volunteers, it can be difficult to single out one or two to nominate for a specific award.  If you would like to recognise the efforts of all of your volunteers as a group, you will need to complete the Group Recognition Form.  Once completed, please email to awards@lancastercvs.org.uk.  At the event, a certificate of recognition will be presented for your group.  Ideally this will be accepted on behalf of your volunteers by one or two representatives of that group.

The names of your volunteers, IF REQUESTED, will also appear in a booklet that will be distributed at the event as part of the welcome pack.

Requesting a Certificate of Recognition for Individual Volunteers

Similarly, you may wish to recognise the efforts of individual volunteers, but not want to nominate them for a specific award category.  If you would like one or more individual volunteers to receive a certificate of recognition, you will need to complete the Individual Volunteer Recognition Form.  Once completed, please email to awards@lancastercvs.org.uk.  At the event, a certificate of recognition will be presented to each volunteer for whom one has been requested.

This year’s event was held on Thursday 11th June 2015, and for the first time we partnered with Lancaster City Council to host a joint Volunteer Achievement Awards and Lancaster Sports Awards.  The event was held at Salt Ayre Sports Centre in Lancaster. We had over 70 nominations representing over 700 local volunteers with  more than 50 voluntary sector groups  represented on the night. Presentations were made by our Deputy Mayor, Councillor Caroline Jackson.

Trustee of the Year was awarded to Sian Johnson from the Duke’s Theatre; Young Volunteer of the Year was awarded to Emma Pearson from Unique Kidz and Co; and Volunteer of the Year was awarded to Lee Wilson from Furniture Matters. See Award Photos for a copy of your organisation’s picture.
