Cheering Volunteering Will Be Back For 2018

Central Bedfordshire's Cheering Volunteering Awards are returning next year, with the fourth annual awards and celebration evening taking place on Tuesday, 5 June 2018.

It will again be held at the Grove Theatre, in Dunstable, and is a terrific opportunity to celebrate the work of volunteers across Central Bedfordshire.

You will be able to nominate people or groups for six different awards, including a new category for 2018: sports volunteer.

Nominations will open on Monday, 8 January 2018 and you’ll then have almost three months to nominate in as many categories as you like. But you can’t nominate the same volunteer in more than one category.

We’ll also have a link to the Inspiring Volunteering grant application form from Monday, 8 January 2018.

There’s a total funding pot of £5,000 available for projects which encourage volunteering or kick-start new activities involving volunteers.

Grant awards will be made from a minimum of £100 to a maximum of £1,000.

Councillor Carole Hegley, Executive Member for Social Care and Housing, said: “We are delighted to be working in partnership with Community and Voluntary services, Community Action and our sponsors Biffa, Prologis, Aragon, Jeakins Weir and Beds Fire and Rescue to again celebrate the contribution of volunteers across Central Bedfordshire.

“We’ve introduced a new Sports Volunteer award for 2018, so when entries open next month then have a think about nominating, for example, those people who brave cold winter mornings to encourage youngsters in a variety of sports.

“We were delighted to help 14 different groups and organisations with our grants scheme last year, so I would encourage people to apply for those too.”

A link to the online nominations form and grant application form will be available from 8 January 2018.
