In News by Caroline Foxton

The Mayor’s Volunteer Awards 2020 are now open and you can nominate by visiting the council’s website: www.reigate-banstead.gov.uk/mayorsawards

The annual award scheme, now in its seventeenth year, was set up to recognise the unrewarded heroes who do a great amount of valuable work for the borough and its community and to show appreciation for their selfless service.  The scheme is organised by Reigate & Banstead Borough Council in partnership with Voluntary Action Reigate and Banstead

Volunteers can be nominated in five award categories:

  1. Young Volunteer Award – For volunteers aged between 16 and 25 who have gone above and beyond the standard expectation for their age and who have used their own volunteer experience to inspire others
  2. Volunteer Award – For volunteers over the age of 25 years old who have exceeded what would normally be expected of them and demonstrated their outstanding commitment to their role
  3. Long Service Award – For volunteers who have completed over 10 years of voluntary service
  4. Individual Trustee Award – For those in Chairman, Treasurer or Secretary roles who have shown due diligence, good governance and commitment for the minimum of a year, providing outstanding support, guidance and inspiration to the organisation.
  5. Volunteer Team Award – For two or more volunteers or trustees who have demonstrated great teamwork, provided support and encouragement for other volunteers, and made a significant and positive impact through working together

 Volunteers must live and/or volunteer in the borough and not receive any remuneration for their time.

The closing date for nominations is Friday, 1st May 2020.
