We’re pleased to be holding our third annual Cheering Volunteering awards and celebration event during National Volunteers Week, on Tuesday 6 June at the Grove Theatre, Dunstable (link opens in new window).

Having grown in success and popularity over the past two years, Cheering Volunteering is organised by us, working in partnership with volunteer centres as part of Central Bedfordshire Together (link opens in new window), to say thank you to those who give their time to help others.

The event is sponsored by Biffa, Aragon Housing, Bedfordshire Fire and Rescue Service, ProLogis and Jeakins Weir.

We’re thrilled to announce that our compere Billy Lee will once again be our master of ceremonies on the night, as he has been a huge hit with the crowds at our previous events.

Outstanding Contribution Award

Many people give unselfishly of their time and effort without realising that they are volunteering. Too often these people go without any recognition of the difference they have made to people’s lives. This award is for an individual that has made a difference to you or someone you know, and has had a very definite, positive impact by going the extra mile.

Lifetime Achievement Award

This award is for an individual who is known for their exceptional contributions to volunteering over a significant number of years. Maybe they’ve contributed leadership, skills and/or time for the good of the community, are consistently dedicated, and have a direct positive impact on others.
