The Shropshire Star, along with the awards sponsors, are searching for the outstanding and selfless individuals and groups across the region who make a difference to the people around them – and usually don’t expect any recognition for what they do.
They may be members of your family, friends, neighbours, colleagues, or someone who you have heard about and found their story inspirational.
But we can’t reward them – unless you tell us!
Shropshire VCSA are sponsoring the Volunteer of the Year
This award will go to an individual who regularly puts others before themselves and is generous with their time to support an individual or group. Some people dedicate a significant proportion of their lives to helping others, receiving no financial reward. This is their chance to be recognised.
The person, or people, you nominate should live or work in the Shropshire and mid Wales area, i.e. within the circulation area of the Shropshire Star. You can also nominate yourself. You can make as many nominations as you like but please complete separate nomination forms for each individual or group.
Online nominations close midnight, Sunday, June 2. In paper nominations must be received by 5pm on Friday, June 7 to the below address.
Send your nominations to:
The Great Big Thank You Awards
You can either complete the nomination form here or use the form available in the Shropshire Star newspaper during the competition.
