POWYS VOLUNTEER OF THE YEAR 2015

Celebrating Volunteering in Powys
Do you know an individual or an organisation that goes the extra mile through volunteering?

You can nominate them for a Powys Volunteer Centre “Powys Volunteer of the Year” award

Previous winners have given exceptional commitment for the benefit of others.  The activities that they participated in were numerous.  For example, it could be someone who helps out at a sports club, a village hall, youth club, charity shop, community car scheme, or a trustee or committee member of a community group or voluntary organisation.

Nominations are allowed for:

§  Individuals of any age

§  Groups - two or more individuals forming a group that carry out a task, activity or project.  This can either be a) a purely voluntary run group or b) a group of volunteers within an organisation with paid staff.  For organisations with paid staff the nomination has to be for the group of volunteers, rather than the organisation.

§  Nominations will be allocated to a category on receipt at PAVO.  As a prompt for nominations the categories this year will include: Green (environment), Community, Wellbeing, Sports, Trustee, Culture, Youth and Group (see above for definition).

§  There will be an additional Outstanding Contribution award, selected from the nominations from the other categories.

For a nomination form or more information contact PAVO on:
