Nominations for Volunteer Awards 2023 now OPEN

Hunts Forum is inviting nominations for it’s annual Volunteer Awards, which will be held for another year at Hinchingbrook Park.

Volunteering has been and continues to be the lifeblood of our communities. In the past few years, many organisations have relied even more on those individuals who support and make things happen!

Our Volunteer Awards are an opportunity to shine a light on the people who deserve special praise for their contributions. The Deputy Lord Lieutenant, Mr Daryl Brown MBE will be joining us to present the awards this year.

Nominate your volunteers

It might be someone who kick-started a new project, an unsung hero who rarely receives thanks, someone, who has provided years of service or has gone the extra mile recently. As in previous years, we will have our Volunteer Award and Rural Volunteer Award. In addition, this year we want to celebrate your Trustees and Young Volunteers.

 The Volunteer, Trustee and Young Volunteer Awards are open to Hunts Forum members, and nominations can be made by filling in this short form and sending it to
