Do you know an outstanding sports volunteer that deserves to be called the London Volunteer or Young Volunteer of the Year?
Nominations for the 2012 PRO-ACTIVE London Awards for Community Sport and Physical Activity are now open, and are looking for a deserving candidates to be named ‘Volunteer and Young Volunteer of the Year’.
The Awards, sponsored by GLL, are the only regional awards which celebrate the contribution of thousands of people, the majority of whom are volunteers, and who make it possible for so many people to take part.
The Volunteer of the Year Award sponsored by Skills Active and the Young Volunteer of the Year sponsored by Fulham Football Foundation will recognize the contribution of an unsung hero who has gone out of their way to encourage people to participate in either sport or physical activities. This person will stand out from the crowd, whether it’s though volunteering at their school, club or sports organisation, their innovation, dedication and unselfish attitude, has made them a role model for others to follow. Do you know such a person?
The nominations will be reviewed by an experienced panel of experts and three short listed candidates will be invited to the event, which will take place at the Kia Oval on the evening of the 27th April 2012. The evening will see hundreds of people from local sports clubs and community organisations rub shoulders with sports stars and enjoy a champagne reception, three course meal and entertainment throughout the evening.
If you would like to nominate somebody for this award or for any other award category, you can do so by visiting the awards website and submitting your nomination, before the deadline of February 29th www.pro-activelondonawards.org
