If someone you know volunteers their time in the local community and deserves recognition then Chester Voluntary Action (CVA) wants to hear from you.

 Nominations are now open for their Volunteer Awards which coincides with this year’s  Volunteers’ Week and has been designed to celebrate local volunteering.  There are five categories to choose from which include volunteers young and old, volunteers from local businesses, as well as those who continue to provide inspiration and longstanding service to local community groups and charities. Chester Voluntary Action, based in the Blue coat school building on Northgate street have been at the heart of voluntary activities in the community for over 100 years.

The winners in each category will be decided by an awards panel which is made up of CVA members including businesses, trustees and volunteers as well as local people within the media. More details on the panel here: http://www.chesterva.org.uk/panel/

Winners will be announced online during Volunteers’ Week which is 1-7 June.
