One week left to nominate Belfast City Council's Older Volunteer of the Year
Are older volunteers involved in your organisation?
Do you want to recognise and celebrate their exceptional contribution over the last year?
Why not nominate them for Belfast City Council's Older Volunteer of the Year Award 2011?
As part of the European Year of Volunteering 2011 Belfast City Council is asking organisations to nominate individuals aged 60 and over, whose dedication, commitment and enthusiasm as a volunteer has made a significant contribution to local people and the community as a whole during the last year. The award is supported by Volunteer Now through the Atlantic Philanthropies.
The Older Volunteer Award will recognise and celebrate the valuable contribution made by older volunteers to the work of organisations, groups and communities across the city.
Nominations for the award must come from the organisation the nominee currently volunteers with. There is no limit to the number of eligible older volunteers that groups and organisations can nominate.
Nominees must live within the Belfast City Council area and be a current formal volunteer with a group or organisation operating within the Belfast City Council area.
If you’d like a nomination form simply download it from www.belfastcity.gov.uk/volunteering or by contacting Tracy Mawhinney at 9032 0202 extn 3775.
The closing date for nominations is Friday 21 October 2011 and the award will be presented to the winning volunteer on 5 December.
