Reigate & Banstead Volunteer Awards 2022

Reigate & Banstead Volunteer Awards 2022

The Mayor of Reigate & Banstead wants all residents, community groups and voluntary organisations to nominate their dedicated volunteers to receive a Reigate & Banstead Volunteers Award in recognition of the valuable work they do.

Cllr Frank Kelly said: “Volunteers represent a crucial force for positive change in communities, helping to make our borough a better place to live and providing support to those who need it most. Recent years have highlighted just how essential volunteers are for so many of us, so it is important we give them the recognition they deserve.”

Volunteers can be nominated in four award categories:

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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

The closing date for nominations is Friday 1 July 2022

It is best if nominated volunteers are not informed of their nomination. Successful nominees will be invited to a special awards ceremony in September.
